Our Junior High Ministry: Progress Report

 

            What a blessing it has been to see our children grow this summer through participating in LIT, Mexico Missions, and serving in VBS.  Now that it has been officially a year since I joined the pastor staff of KUMC, I can say that I am more in love with Jesus today than I was back then. This is mainly because I have received so much love from the youth and the parents! A few things I’ve learned in the past year are as follows: 1.) God loves disciples and not just leaders.  2.) God is on the move towards revival in our children. 3.) God’s name is faithful!


            This year our servant team has changed its name and vision from “Leadership” to “Discipleship Training (DT)”. This came from the realization that our kids need real training before receiving any sort of title that they are a “leader”. The quality of a leader is more than just ordering people around. The best quality in a leader is a teachable heart and the humility to lower themselves before God. Therefore, each month our DT group has come up with themes that will go along with my sermon series. The month of October is focused on “courage”. We will explore the different facets of courage and how God empowers us to be encouraged through His strength and love for His people.


            God is on the move towards revival in our children. I can see this not only in the way they respond during worship but through their understanding and recollection of the Bible. Each time we gather together as a small group we are challenged to memorize verses so that we can stir the soul in accordance to the words that come from the Holy Spirit. We are also experiencing this through our Saturday Morning Prayer meetings when the kids gather together to pray for the church, for their schools, for families, and the many occurrences in the world. We are praying that through the upcoming Joy Together that students will reach out to their friends at school, especially those who are non-Christian to come to our church to celebrate fellowship in Jesus Christ and ultimately meet the Lord and so that one more person would be found.


            Lastly, I have seen how faithful God has been. I’m excited for more of His faithfulness to be discovered as I keep walking with Him and our Jr. High students. At first when I was told by the Lord to stay in Michigan I really felt burdened thinking that I was just “settling”. I have an adventurous heart and this part of me really wanted to get away from what I remember as home here in Michigan. But by his Grace I really learned that, God’s ways are higher than my ways, and His thoughts are higher than my own thoughts. What I think is the right way might be the wrong way. This process of discovering the voice of God in my heart has been challenging but life changing at the same time. I am learning that we must take courage and wait upon all His good ways even when they’re not visible in the moment. Please continue to pray for our Jr. High ministry and that they will constantly be good stewards of our Kingdom’s Culture.

 

Shalom,

 

Pastor Jane
