Servant Leader - Jason

 

Why on earth do you choose to work with youth? 

When I was a youth, there were leaders who were there for me in times of need and I want to be there for youth when they are in need. God’s love and compassion stirs me to love them and to expose the lies of the enemy and replace them with God’s powerful truth.

 

What are some of the main things you hope these youth learn? 

God loves you so stinkin' much, you have no idea how big His love is for you. It’s all about relationships, see Mark 12:30 & 31.

1 Cor.10:13 Don’t try fighting it alone. Cry out to God! Also utilize your accountability partners. “Walk in The Spirit and you won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh.”

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8a
