Nick’s Baptism

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be a witness to God’s work.   I have seen too many wonderful things during my time in ministry to even begin to list them here.

This past weekend, Nick was baptized.  There have been 3 students from our Rec program baptized in the past year. Being a part of these important days has been my biggest honor and most humbling experience in ministry so far.

We met Nick through our Rec program at the school. He was actually there before I was. He’s been coming since he was a middle school student.   (He’s begins his junior year next week)

We have been honored to watch Nick accept Christ, we’ve been privileged to have him join our JUSTIFIED crew and get plugged into a small group and we are blessed to have him on the drums during our morning worship services. He is a remarkable young man and we are all blessed to know him.  We all (our church family) love him. About 30 people showed up at the lake at 8:00 on a chilly morning.  7 went into the water.  Nick couldn’t believe so many people were there to support him. There’s no doubt that WE were the ones who were blessed.

God does amazing things in our midst every day. And those of us in youth ministry get to be front and center for so many of those things.   I can’t imagine doing anything else with my life.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from Sunday.

Congratulations, Nick. We are all SO proud of you and feel honored to call you a part of our family.
