Connecting with Youth--Meeting One-on-One
In the months to come, I will be calling/messaging the youth to meet and connect at a deeper level about their life and faith journey. This will be a time where we are able to talk one-on-one. I am in the process of setting up something called Ride-A-Long Ministry that will allow me & another person to do transportation if needed to make this happen.
