What is your ministry?

I am currently handling the Young Adults ministry in our church. As the pastor, I am tasked with shepherding and mentoring this specific age group. I am also tasked with steering the ministry in the direction God has called us to go. I am currently mentoring and shepherding the core team composed of 8 people who help me reach out to the other young adults in our church. They are the ones I shepherd to help me shepherd the other Young Adults in our church. It is a ministry that I believe to be vibrant because of the passion and dedication of my teammates. I am blessed to be able to serve these people.

When did you trust Christ?

I became a Christian when I was 22 years old. But I have known about Christianity since I was young as I grew up in a Christian family.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

He is my Lord and Savior. He is the one who has shown me what true love is. I owe everything to Him because He genuinely let me feel what unconditional love is. That is why I serve Him knowing I can never pay back what I owe to Him. I love spending time with Him because studying the word of God and seeing how I can apply it in my life guides everything I do.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

First, I hope to become better equipped for God's calling. Second, I want to develop specifically fleshing out the mission and vision I have in my head in a way that is understandable and easy to follow for the people in our church. Third, I also would like to develop curriculums that are simple and easy to follow for people. Lastly, I would love to learn from others about how they do discipleship to help me hone my discipleship theology.

What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?

I am involved in preaching, teaching, and shepherding as well as other pastoral roles.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I see the people in my sphere of influence as salt and light to the world. I know I cannot save anyone, but what I know is that I am allowed to show who God is in my life by being salt and light in my sphere of influence.
