This week has a lot of significance for me. On this weekend, for nearly 14 years as a youth pastor, I had the opportunity to take a group of students to state youth convention here in Missouri. As we planted The Table, we prayed that one day that we would have a student ministry of our own that would take students as well. This coming weekend, those prayers will become a reality as we will be sending Sarah Lancaster and 3 students to Missouri Youth Fellowship 2018 in Kansas City!!!
We love kids and youth at The Table because God didn't wait for David to be old before he was placed before a Giant. He didn't wait until Samuel and Jeremiah were old before He began speaking to and through them. He didn’t wait for Mary to be old before He asked her to be the mother of the Messiah. He didn’t wait for Timothy to be old before He sent him on mission trips and then placed him in pastoral leadership. God doesn’t always wait for kids and students to graduate from College or High school before He begins speaking to them. We believe they are at the perfect age to begin a revolution in their school. We believe they are at a perfect age to impact their family, and we believe they have been given a circle of friends for a time such as this. We believe Jesus has an amazing journey for them!
We are so thankful for our staff and volunteers that invest a ton of hours into our kids and youth! I cannot think of a Kingdom investment more important, can you?
With sincere love for each of you,
