Never be afraid to allow the youth in your church to take on roles and responsibilities that are challenging and require MAD skills. Some of Cross Street’s (K-5 ministry) BEST volunteers are peeps from Remix, Grace’s youth. They are excited and super CREATIVE each and every Sunday, and I am constantly impressed with their dedication and leadership skills.
Take Aubrey for example! She not only does an amazing job leading worship in Cross Street, but she also jumped at the chance to help lead a Small Group. Aubrey has become an amazing leader in Cross Street, and we are LUCKY to have her on the team.
And then there is Scottie and Grant, two guys that will do just about anything in order to create an exciting environment for kids to learn about Christ. Scottie leads a Small Group of K thru 1st Graders, and Grant leads a group of 4th and 5th grade boys. Both are always there to help with Tear Down stuff as well.
Brandon and Kyle are brothers who show up each and every Sunday to help Set Up our Large Group area, and then they turn around and run tech for our first service. I know each and every Sunday that these two guys are going to be faithful and will always do a great job creating our LG environment.
Let’s not forget about our Large Group Storyteller, NIC. This cat is crazy talented, and with a million things going on right now he always finds the time to enlighten our CS Kids on Sundays.
And then there is most of my Tech Team who are in Middle School and High School. Super CREATIVE Peeps like Naomi, Max, Cory, and Logan!
There are tons of Remix Peeps helping lead in Small Groups like Daniel and David, Alli, Alexis, Kyle, Michelle, Zac, Trevor, and Austin. They are amazing!
The Youth of today’s Church are CRAZY TALENTED and ready to serve. I say let’s give them a chance!
