Young Life Purpose

Good Essays
I feel the purpose of the Young Life ministry is to show students the power of God and teach them how to start or continue on in their faith journey all while having fun and being in a safe environment. Young Life shows that learning about God doesn’t only have to be a serious but can also be fun and with friends. Some fun ways include going to club and paying games then listening to a leader speak or going camp and listening to talks by the guest speaker. At both of these you are able to have fun and be serious while trying to expand you faith. Another purpose of Young Life is to show that you have people that want to support you and show you that you aren’t alone in your journey. They want to show you how to get through the hard times in life and that God has a plan no matter what even if it is not what you envisioned. This is so meaningful because you are able to be in a safe and non-judgmental place where you can talk about anything on your mind. Being in middle or high school can make you feel alone even though you are never alone, there is always someone that is in a very similar position as you who can help you or guide you through.

Now I nanny alternating 2 and 4 times a week but I would most definitely be able to put in at least 5 hours a week for Wyldlife activities. If I am accepted to be a leader I will make sure that Wednesday night are Wyldlife nights and that I have to be there no matter what. As for being a ref the only time I could conflict with anything is one leadership meeting which I will make sure I would be able to attend and switch times if I work during

    It took me many services at our church to realize what I was doing there. I started to remember why I even started going to church in the first place. I only went to church and became baptized because my parents wanted me to. It was rare that I ever voluntarily wanted to go to church. Every time that I was told to pray to God, I tried to picture sending my words up to heaven, but it never felt right when I was done.…

    Growing up as a child I believed religion was just going to church every Sunday with my grandparents. My grandmother was a very religious person and always made sure I prayed every night and went to church every Sunday even when I didn’t want to. As a young child all I could really comprehend is that God…

    Laughing connects to my calling because one thing that I have learned by working with individuals especially kids with disabilities you need to just laugh with them. The main way I try to gain trust with kids is by engaging in activities that they enjoy doing. Once I gain their trust I believe that they will be more receptive to what I have to tell them. As a part of my calling being a team player is huge. If I ever do get a chance to fulfill my sense of calling to lead and ABLE Ministry, I want to make sure that I make every volunteer feels like they are contributing the success of the…

    I also interviewed one of my good friends that goes to UNI that has attended events with this group before. He said that it is a great group of people to be around and is a lot of fun with the activities they do. He also said that they are very welcoming to people who want to learn more about religion, for me this was the icing on the cake to get the reinsurance from a friend that this would be a good fit for me. (Braught) I plan on getting involved by showing up and participating with them. This is the hard part for me because it 's out of my comfort zone.…

    Each of the students had it in them to improve their lives and do the things they wished they could, but it took meeting Vikram to get them to see this. In the end they did it themselves, but in a sense Vikram showed them to way to self-improvement and inner peace. In this sense, I believe that he did become a spiritual leader, though perhaps not in the way that most people would perceive one to be. I really enjoyed watching this documentary and found it to be a good learning experience. The Kumare documentary shows religion as being socially constructed in that Vikram brought together a group of people and worked with them to create and develop an ideology they could use to view and understand themselves and the world.…

    My whole life, I’ve grown up going to Catholic Church every week. My parents are very strong Catholics, but I never felt anything special in church and always had trouble paying attention. I thought of myself as a Christian because I always went to church, prayed, went to Sunday school, and said I loved Jesus. When I was in 1st grade, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. She survived, but this really scared me and I questioned why God would do something that bad to my mom.…

    Damontez, “I can apply what I learned from this project in my everyday life. I learned how to come together as complete strangers but men of Christ and pray for one another. This will allow me to grow spiritually. Being more open will also allow me to grow spiritually because when I’m open with God and other Christians about the struggles I have faced, it will make me feel better. As I open my heart to the Lord I will grow with Christ and be able to have great conversations with him.” Jacob, “I can apply this to my life by seeing the importance of prayer and small group fellowship.…

    When I attend Community Bible Church I almost always take notes during the sermon, no one was taking notes at St. Matthew. I noticed how the Catholic mass has a sequence that remains the same for prayer, music and pattern and regardless of what language you speak you can still follow. Communion was dispersed and is distributed at each mass where at my church we only receive communion about once per quarter and on special occasions like Christmas and Easter. I did not participate in communion when I attended St. Matthew. I noticed some other people not partaking and later learned that some of those people had not gone to…
