FROM DAVID SANCHEZ, YOUTH DIRECTOR
the bible teaches that we are to strive to create unity (1 Corinthians 1:10; 2 Corinthians 13:11; Acts 4:32; Galatians 3:28). i think that we, as youth leaders have done an amazing job of cultivating a spirit of unity within RISE. however, RISE lives within a thriving ecosystem of apprenticeship to Jesus at New Beginnings Church. it is my goal to promote intergenerational fellowship so that we may look more like a church. my dream is to have youths who know boomers in the church. my goal is for us to have thriving friendships with the older folks at this church that are life-giving. they want it just as much as we do. and we all need it more than we realize. this is one of the fundamental changes we will be making that i believe will make us look a lot less like a youth program and a lot more like a youth ministry.
Here at New Beginnings, we call our student ministry Rise youth . Rise is a place for 6th - 12th graders to meet with Jesus, hear from Jesus, and respond to Jesus with friends and leaders who believe in them. We believe God has an incredible plan for our students. Influence isn’t defined by age, so our desire is to equip our students with a good understanding of who God is and who we are in Christ to change the world around us - whether that’s at school, on a team, at home, or even at church!
Good Word, Lena!!
