As women in youth ministry we love students and their families. We love life and the God who has given us life. We know what it means to feel, to ache, to cry, and to rejoice. We give our lives away because we know a Father who loves our students more than we could ever imagine. This is why WE LOVE.
Mud, dirt, sweat…bring it! We aren’t afraid. If connecting with our students means not taking a shower for a week, then we’ll do it! If getting a student to smile means getting a cake thrown in our face, then we’ll risk messing up our make up for a cause. We play because we know that playing creates story, laughter and freedom. This is why WE PLAY.
As ministers we wake up with a calling, a calling to save what is lost. We look around and see students walking away from their purpose and story, and our hearts break. God supernaturally gives us eyes to see their hearts where we can speak life in such a way that ignites passion for more. We not only love students, but we like students. We desire for them to not only make it, but to become world changers for Jesus. This is why WE MINISTER.
