Coffee Shops…Where Life Change Happens
God has called people, like me, to invest in the lives of the next generation so that there are more stories of life change to be had.
I was asked the other day why I like Student Ministry so much. Besides the obvious, loving to play just dance for hours on end, or my absolute LOVE for Lock Ins… OR even more, my undying love for Justin Bieber. Truth be told, there is an even deeper reason why I like Student Ministry so much. Are you ready for it?
Text “VOLPEL” and your Name to 75309 so that you can start making a difference in the next generation through fpStudents.
I have a passion to see life change happen in students’ lives BEFORE they experience the “messiness” of this world. It’s true! I was given the opportunity to meet with a student a few weeks ago for coffee and I was so inspired by the end of our conversation because this young lady told me where she once was and where God has brought her today. I am so in awe of who she is because God has truly transformed her life.
She WAS in a time of darkness and feeling alone. She WAS ignored by many of her friends and family. She WAS afraid and falling deep into sin. And because of what Christ has done, because of God providing a small group for her to attend at fpStudents, she IS set free from the bondage that she was once in. She IS heard by our one true God. She IS not afraid, but is confident in who she is in Christ.
That is why I love student ministry so much. I love the fact that God can use me, plain ol me, to just listen to a student as she shares her heart. He uses people like me to speak into these lives and to help them see that they are NOT who they think they are but instead they are the child of the most high God. God has called people, like me, to invest in the lives of the next generation so that there are more stories of life change like this student has had.
I love student ministry because I know that God is GREATER than the plans of the enemy and I believe that he is going to use THIS generation to change our world. Do you want to make a difference in even just one of those lives that will change the world? Do you want to see how God can use you in fpStudents? Then can you do something?! Will you text “VOLPEL” and your name to 75309?! I would love to help get you connected within this ministry so that lives can be changed by your willingness to step out in faith and in courage.
