A council is an assembly of persons called together for consultation, deliberation, or discussion. It serves in an administration or advisory capacity.

The purpose of the Woodlawn Forrest Youth Council is as follows:
• To assist the youth minister with planning programs, projects, outings, activities etc.
• To help prepare for and attend youth gatherings and events.
• To be responsible for “carrying out” planned activities if the youth minister can not be there.
• To host youth cook-outs, picnics, cottage meetings, etc. in order to show the hospitality that God has commanded of us.
• To provide wholesome and Christian activities for the youth who attend Woodlawn Forrest.
