"God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." - Ephesians 2:8-10

MY PURPOSE: I have been a youth leader for over 6 years serving in both the Jr High and High School ministries. It is an awesome to see so many of the students give their life to the Lord, and grow in their faith in the Lord through the Youth Group services and activities.

FAVORITE MEMORY: The retreats and mission trips are my favorite. I will always remember the first summer retreat to Palm Springs with the Jr High. Those students will be graduating High School this coming June. I remember a High School mission trip to the Door of Faith orphanage was a real eye opener, seeing what God can do through those who are faithful. On another mission trip to Mexico, I was driving a church van and we got separate from the others 5 minutes after crossing the boarder. And our cell phones no longer worked. We discovered the printed map we has was useless because there were few street signs where we were going. But God sent us a man who knew where we were going and he had us follow him to our destination.

WHEN I SERVE: 11AM Sunday Service
