Summer Youth Leadership Program

 

Lessons Learned…and Lessons Yet to Come

Our Summer Youth Leadership Program has been very busy spreading the love of Jesus. From Boys & Girls Clubs to hosting children’s groups at the NCC, they are truly becoming urban missionaries. A few of them shared from their heart with us and we wanted to share them with you:

I’m truly beyond blessed to get the opportunity to work alongside these awesome teens who have basically become my family. The relationships I have built and the things I have learned will never be erased. We’ve been studying 1st John. Its purpose was to warn about the increasing threat of false teachings and to reassure Christians of their faith and love in Jesus Christ. My favorite part of the summer is going to the Boys & Girls Clubs and teaching them about our wonderful God.  –Destiny

I love being in an environment where everyone is comfortable with each other and we can all just have fun and be in the presence of God with no judgment about anyone whatsoever because we all care for each other. –Azona

I have loved being a part of the program so much just because I have been able to see into the lives of kids and see how God has worked in their lives. I have been humbled and stretched through watching their diligence and determination in this job. It is a great opportunity for these kids and myself, to learn leadership skills and teamwork! And the best of all, to learn the love of God! –Cara, Program Assistant

What I learned from working at the NCC is learning to work as a team and being family. My favorite things during the program are the Bible studies, skits, dances, and also teaching young kids about God. –Jaida

I ask myself in decisions of my life “What would Jesus do?” a question that helps me to understand what is right in God. I don’t always make the right choices and sometimes I just want to fit into the world but God is always there no matter what, with his arms open to give and forgive. –Bryan
