There couldn't have been a better way for us to start Thanksgiving week than with our NYWC family in Atlanta. It was such an incredible time connecting with each other, catching up on life, and finding encouragement and inspiration for the next year of ministry.
We were reminded once again how thankful we are for youth leaders. Every moment you spend caring for students makes a difference. The energy you pour into building relationships creates a safe place for God to speak to students and for them to respond. All the lock-ins, the retreats, late-night ice cream runs, sleepless weeks of camp, and the emotion-filled times of being with students in the most difficult moments of life are all a part of something amazing... God illuminating the hearts and minds of students who will change the world.
That's why youth leaders are our heroes. What you do matters and we can't thank you enough.
