- Theology of Ministry with Young People
My theology helps me to understand God’s unconditional love for every one of God’s children. I strongly believe that this love is something I am privileged to know and to show others, especially youth. I believe in a forgiving God that mourns are separation from Him through sin but rejoices when we find our faults and ask for forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ is God’s son who came to earth and sacrificed his life so that I might have a fighting chance. And this belief in Jesus Christ separates me as a Christian from those of other religions who still believe in the same God. And finally, I believe in the Holy Spirit who is among us on earth and who continues to guide and watch over us. All these beliefs, I hope, come out in my everyday example and through my teachings and lessons. I believe it is important for youth to discuss theology and to know how to state what they believe in well. Yet, I also think it is important for them to draw their own conclusions. It is my job to teach them how to form theological opinions, not to help them learn to regurgitate what I say they should believe.
- How will connecting with me support your ministry?
I have 12 years of experience in youth ministry in different settings of youth ministry. One of my passions is to connect with and help those youth workers who are new, overwhelmed, or just need some extra support.
