We are very blessed to have Asher Kenerly as our Youth Intern this summer. Asher is a recent graduate from Georgia Tech, and he will be taking a job in Virginia, just outside Washington, DC after his time with us. Asher's is excited to be home for the summer doing work that he loves serving the Lord and leading others to Christ.
During his tenure at Georgia Tech, Asher was involved within the Baptist Campus Ministries organization where he served as president his senior year. He has hosted their planning retreat at his home here in Jesup, and he has spearheaded the backpack distribution for the Georgia Tech BCM. He has a heart for serving and looks forward to spending time at home leading our students to a deeper and more personal relationship with Christ. We are grateful to have Asher joining us this summer serving with our youth.
Developing relationships with each other and being intentional within those relationships is an important step in becoming an active member in our youth department. One way you can make that happen is to participate in the activities we have planned for our youth in the next couple of months. Some of the events already on the calendar include:
- ·Sunday nights and more events to come
- ·Dive-ins—Most Wednesdays all summer
- ·Camp Hawkins—June 12, 13, 15—go over in the morning and return each afternoon AND also help unload the campers in front of the church on June 16th and join them as they sing in our morning worship service
- ·Vacation Bible School—June 17-21 (a special trip is planned on the 21st for the youth who work in VBS)
- ·Attend the rescheduled lock-in for all our youth
We are working on planning other activities, and we will announce them as they are finalized. We want our youth involved and active in the ministries of our church, but we also want them to know it is ok the have fun while you are participating.
The Youth Minister Search Committee continues to meet on a regular basis as they search for the person God has planned for us as our new youth minister. The search committee has committed to working together to find that person, and the committee asks that each of you to please keep the members in your prayers. Also, please continue praying for whomever the Lord had planned to come serve in our church as the Youth Minister. Pray that his/her heart will be open to serve the Lord at FBC Jesup, and pray that we will welcome him/her with open arms and open hearts.
