1 Timothy 4:12

Let no man despise your youth; but be an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in faith, in purity.’

We live in exciting times! Times that are rapidly changing.  Today’s youth are faced with moral confusion.  There are fundamental divisions in our society that aid in social pressures in the lives of America’s youth.  But what of Jesus Christ?  He sets a high standard for you.  The highest standard there is!  He knows the beginning and the end (Isaiah 46:10) because He always was, is, and forever will be!  He is the ‘Captain of our salvation’ (Hebrews 2:10 KJV) and He knows your heart’s desire.  He’s the Lord of understanding and compassion.  My hearts desire is for you to truly know the ‘joy of the Lord’ (Nehamiah 8:10 NKJ) and to have that ‘peace that passes all understanding’ (Philipians 4:7 KJV).   I hope to help you realize those particular gifts God has given you and to joyfully use them for the benefit of others and for the glory of the King of kings.

Be a part of something bigger than yourself!  Live life for the right reason and live life on purpose.  You are important so let the journey begin!  We look forward to seeing you!

I welcome your questions so feel free to contact me!
