In the past, a separation between adults and youth has existed, both in the social and economic area, as well as in ecclesiastical matters. Due to this, a barrier was formed, causing the relationship between the different age groups to go unattended. For this reason, communication and instruction are important in order to influence the following generations to serve God from an early age.

PASS IT ON means to hand down the knowledge, motivation, and leadership the adults possess by teaching the youth from an early age and allowing for this knowledge to be passed down from generation to generation, in this manner will propagate the growth of a transformed generation.
