Personal Narrative: My Experience As A Youth Worker

Better Essays
My church has many opportunities to get involved, while looking at theses opportunities I chose the ones that fit myself best. These consist of being a youth worker in the nursery and participating in teaching sunday school during church services. If I could change anything it would be to volunteer more in the kitchen and in the summer programs. This would let me fellowship and grow with other believers. This summer I worked as a youth worker for a concert where I helped prepare food and brought it to the bands playing at my church.

During the course of being a youth worker in the nursery I have volunteered from the beginning of my eighth grade year to present day. As a nursery worker I am required to arrive 15 minutes before the service

There is always a moment in a person 's life that is the most memorable whether it is winning the world series, or the last moments spent with a loved one, these moments define our lives and what we aspire to become. My most memorable moment was when I accepted Christ into my life, I was around the age of four and everything seemed to be simple. Then I grew up, my life changed, which then caused questions that made me looking for answers. These changes included public high school, work, and friends who were not believers.This is when the majority of my faith grew, I looked for answers in the bible and from other believers, while I faced what was the called the “real world”. My friends grew to respect and listen to what I believed. This gave me comfort and this comfort was not from the feeling of approval but was from …show more content…

My life at home since I can remember has been the most influential time in my life. I grew up in a christian home, and my parents are very firm believers. My life has been full of people who have encouraged me in many different ways. I have my pastor who brings a message every sunday and who is a friend of the family. He has been open to answering any questions I have and getting to know everyone in the church. There have been many adults who have encouraged me to volunteer and go on different missions trips. My home life has a great influence on how I react to everyone around me.

In my life my parents have been the majority of where my authority comes from, yes I have teachers and bosses but I will always listen to my parents first. I believe that my whole life should be placed under God 's authority, even if my parents make the rules I will only abide by them if they are pleasing to God. Family discipline is something I believe in especially as learning tool. I believe that of a lesson can be learned from the punishment then it is okay, but if punishment stands for humiliation and nothing else then there is no point. In my years during college or after I would like to serve either locally or in another country in ministry. Every believer

    I was always heavily involved in anything and everything at church. I was raised to understand that church was more than just a place we go on Sunday mornings. More often than not, my church was my second home. From being the first to get there and last to leave Sunday mornings, weekly Bible studies, AWANA, work days, you name it, my family was there. Growing up in this environment taught me a lot about who we are called to be in the body of Christ, but also the reasons behind it.…

I was so happy and having all those people around me to support and care for me made it so much…

    The pastor is very approachable and is willing to talk, pray, and listen to me. He encourages us all and always preaches the truth. I have met so many wonderful people at church that it is just such a blessing for all of the support. I go to the church three times out of the week: Sunday for worship service, Tuesday for prayer and choir rehearsal, and Wednesday for Bible study. Being in the church is always an amazing feeling because I am in God’s presence and I feel like I could stay there for the rest of my life and be happy.…

    Christianity has always been a large part of my life, as far back as my memories will reach. I grew up in a Christian home and we would go to church just about every week. From there, I thus knew about Christianity from your typical church atmosphere where your parents stick you in a room with other children as they go listen to the sermon. To be completely honest, I truly don’t remember learning much, but just wanting to be back home so I could play. In fact, I don’t remember where I really understood that Jesus is my saviour; all I know is that it’s a deeply ingrained fact in my mind.…

    She told me that he was a forever friend that could live in my heart. When I went home that day, I told my parents that I wanted to ask Jesus into my heart. My father and I talked for a long time. I was a pretty articulate little girl, so he just asked me a bunch of questions to be sure I knew what I was saying. That day, I prayed with my dad that Jesus would be my Lord and Savior.…

    My parents have raised me in a Christian home, I have gone to a Christian school my whole life, and now here I am, at a Christian College. Even though I have always had a Christian influence on my life, that doesn’t mean my life has been a breeze. I have had friendships fall apart, loved ones pass away, and fear about my future. Throughout all of this, I have felt the Holy Spirit working in my life. I have had many opportunities to go on mission’s trips with my church, and have felt the Holy Spirit working in my group.…

    It is no longer something I do and then move on it is more something that I can feel, which just gives me so much more faith in God and what he can do. My personal “worship” time has reached a new level, and in my life there are so many things I am seeing happening by just being obedient and trying to worship God in my daily actions. I feel I still have a long way to go but I also believe I am on the right track. As a college group we have a service every Wednesday afternoon. As one of the music students every fortnight I get the privilege of being in the worship band, I feel that with this new found knowledge of worship that I am able to enter in a lot better then I used to be able to.…

    So I am apart of that team, where I get the chance to also meet even more amazing leaders in that position when they are preaching at chapel because my job is “front row headset” where I communicate anything the leaders/pastors would want with the people in the back. I also get to handle the mics. and just serve the leaders in any way they ask me to. SO COOL. This week, I was given the chance to give a devotional to my college group and speak to my group before pastor John spoke.…
