Mixed Emotions

Have you ever felt sad yet happy at the same time? I have. The hardest thing about student ministries is accepting the fact that students will come and go from your ministry. Although on the flip side, nothing brings greater joy to a youth pastor's heart when he watches students transition into adulthood and begin pursuing their dreams. Kristin and I have felt since we began in the ministry that God would bring young people through our ministry that would go far above and beyond our own personal accomplishments. So when I think of the class of 2008, I can't help but think God had this class in mind. Kristin and I can't say it enough; we are so proud of this years graduating class and can't wait to see the great things God chooses to do through them.
