Lost and Found - Youth DiscipleNow Weekend
This weekend our youth are taking part in a DiscipleNow weekend experience with the theme "Lost and Found." The youth have been actively involved in Bible study, worship, mission service, and community building events. While I am excited to hear about the spiritual impact on our youth, I am already impressed by the number of adults Brad Stewart, our Minister for Discipleship and Youth, has involved in this weekend experience with our youth. Some have served as host homes, others as sponsors, others as worship and Bible study leaders, others worked side-by-side with the youth at the Furniture Bank, others were part of fun experience at the mall, and still others will help prepare breakfast for the youth in the morning. One of the most important things we can offer our youth outside of introducing them to Christ are adults who can serve as models of people living their lives for Christ. Brad has pulled together an incredible team of adults who are great models for our youth to see and know. I am thankful for Brad's heart for shared ministry. I am equally thankful for so many adults who were willing to say "yes" to investing their time - and their lives - into the lives of the youth that call First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City home. Well done!
