Why I Like Working with the Youth: I did not grow up going to a church or youth group but I did long to have adults want to invest their lives in me. And so that's what I want to do. I want to impact lives. I want everyone to know that they were created by a loving God and that He has a purpose for their lives! I want the youth to know they are loved and valuable and can do amazing things for God!

Why I Like Working With the Youth: Youth group made a large impact on me while I was in middle school and high school. I looked forward to Friday nights. It really helped me solidify my decision to walk with Christ. I feel I can give back by hopefully striving to make an impact on just one youth.

Why I Like Working With the Youth: Each season of life presents unique challenges, but I personally found adolescence to be one of the most tumultuous, confusing periods of my life. God taught me a lot in that time period, and the years that followed, and I consider it a privilege to be able to walk with, and hopefully encourage, the youth of San Lo now. I also get to serve on a team alongside some of the most thoughtful, talented, and loving sisters and brothers in Christ!

Why I Like Working with the Youth: I grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ at VBS. Although I had Christ in my heart, I didn’t know what living for Christ really meant. Youth Group is where I experienced God the most and learned how to live a Christ centered life. Seeing God move in this ministry continues to encourage me everyday to pursue Christ with everything. Till I have nothing left.

Why I Like Working with the Youth: Youth group helped form a foundation my understanding of God, salvation, and scripture when I was a teen. In such a formative time of growing up, and the culture we’re in now, I truly enjoy helping the youth now digest how the gospel and their faith influences all aspects of life around them. Also, our students are incredibly funny, thoughtful, and caring that it makes each Friday a joy to be there!

Why I Like Working with the Youth: Growing up as a teenager in NorCal I faced a lot of challenges. I didn't have many mentors and learned a lot of lessons the tough way, but fortunately God brought me through relatively unscathed. So I like working with youth to help them face their own challenges with a God-centered focus, as they mature and start to figure out who they are and who they want to be.

Why I Like Working with the Youth: The GYM community has had a profound impact on my life. I believe I truly started having a personal relationship through the friends and people I met at GYM. Shortly after I graduated I was excited to help out at the youth group during my summers and breaks and started full time youth leading in 2016 when I moved back to the Bay Area. Overall those years, I have been blessed to see youth grow from middle school all the way to youth leaders serving alongside myself. The joy I get from serving the youth is beyond words and God has blessed me along the entire journey to continue to call me to work in this ministry.
