Happy Thanksgiving from SW Region Youth Ministry!
During this time of thanksgiving, I want to let you know that I am so grateful to all of you! Your support of our youth and our youth ministry programs fills me with love and appreciation. I feel blessed to work with the Southwest Region youth, youth ministry volunteers, youth directors, ministers and parents. It is a joy and privilege to serve you and our children and teens.
There will be some changes in the youth ministry program this coming year:
First, our beloved Jacquie Hardesty will be releasing the role in running background checks for our youth ministry volunteers. She has been in selfless service to our youth directors and our region for years. I am grateful to her for so many reasons. I will be taking over running background checks as of the first of the year. The forms and instructions are available on the youth ministry website, under “Adults Working With Youth”.
Another change for this year is we will be looking for a couple of churches to host and facilitate our Service Rally. This is a wonderful opportunity for our youth ministry leaders to take on a larger role in supporting the teens and have the wonderful experience of seeing an event come together. Trust me, it is a great feeling! Please contact me if you would like more information about facilitating our YOU Service Rally.
Once again, it is a blessing to serve each of you. Please feel free to contact me with any of your questions or youth ministry needs. Have a wonderful holiday!
