There are many conversations we have where someone wants to know about our beginning. Meaning, “How did you get started in ministry?”, “How did you know you were supposed to teach teens?”, and “When did you get involved?”
Neither Rob nor I had a “specific person” (not counting parents) who spoke into our lives regarding direction, beliefs, choices, or correction. For us, this void left a lot of gray areas for us to play in.
Twenty years later, we now have the opportunity to share truth with students, parents and community leaders that is real, relevant and redeemed.
As youth workers in our community and beyond, Rob and I hope to be (and train others to be) that “specific person” in the lives of the many youth that we work with. Whether it be from a large assembly, a classroom presentation, or a weekly mentoring meeting, we want every aspect of our lives to be shared and be available to help teens and families as they walk through their Crossroads.
