last week for 5 days was our annual IMPACT event for our student ministry. really, it’s the beginning and end of our year as a ministry. i’d been to IMPACT before but just for an evening, not the long haul. it’s kind of like a multi-day music festival on a smaller scale. tent camping, speakers, seminars, bands – the whole deal. we took a group of close to 80 students, and another 20ish adults. to top it off, our band also lead an evening of worship on friday
was it amazing? yes
were there frustrations? yes
but at the end of it, God moved.
high school & middle school students accepting Christ.
kids getting baptized for the first time & others reaffirming their baptism.
healing beginning in broken families.
students stepping up in leadership, especially young men.
people experencing God like never before.
yeah, it’s a good thing.
1 Timothy 4:12
Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
