5 years…a new milestone

today i past a milestone…5 years of youth ministry at calvary.  5 years ago we were in a tent in the parking lot, we were small but had so much potential. we were called you turn, but now we are crave. these past 5 years have shaped my life, ministry and passion. i have seen god do so many things. looking back on transitioning from being in a place for 9 and a half years to here…i can truly see that God is preparing us for a bright future.  i can remember being asked by a contemporary what i wanted to do in ministry…i said i want to go somewhere and stay for like 10 years…he laughed! (close to 15 years later i have only worked for 2 pastors-how many can say that?) i was also told by some that were close that i wouldn’t last 5 more years in youth ministry…well here we are.  to all the doubters i have to say…look what the lord has done! i have to say that i am more excited than ever in ministry! the journey of youth ministry has its ups and downs…but i can look back over these past 5 years and see lives truly changed by the hand of God. i just want to be a instrument God can use to touch lives.  

living the dream…one day at a time!
