My Buddies

Since becoming the Youth Pastor at Crossroads, I've had the opportunity of developing relationships with young people. In fact I can't tell you enough how much I absolutely love doing what I do, getting to invest into a generation that I believe has incredible potential, has been so fulfilling and rewarding. Although this weekend I realized something. As much as I love ministering to our young people, it doesn't compare to how much I love and value of the opportunity to have them ministering along side of me. In which watching them lead worship on Sunday was amazing, not to mention taking stage after them was such a great feeling. I couldn't help but think to myself as they were leading worship..... "Those are my buddies, and today I get minister along side them."

I just hope all of you students know how extremely proud Kristin and I are of you. Your willingness to step out in boldness, seizing the opportunity to lead the adult congregation, is simply inspiring. We love you guys.
