Engaging students in the process of knowing Jesus.
"I serve in JSM because I really enjoy serving others, and I love music. Being on the worship team also allows me to worship God and help lead others in worship. I really feel called to volunteer. I also serve in JL because I love teaching kids the truth about what God has done, and who he is. I also love working with others who share my willingness to serve."
"It's been a joy and privilege to watch our girls grow and bond together and it's so awesome to see how they encourage one another. I love seeing how the Lord is present in their lives and working in their hearts. I would say that one of the best ways I have seen them grow is by developing THEIR personal faith and relationship with the Lord, not just the faith of their parents or leaders. That aspect is really cool. Besides understanding the message of the gospel and salvation, I have seen growth in their maturity regarding their Christian walk and loving others in a Christ-like way, especially when in difficult situations.
These girls are PRECIOUS to me! I love them dearly, which is a gift from the Lord. I feel like we have bonded through group time, Fusion, Winter Camp, snacks and parties, serving and seeing them outside of JSM, whether at church on Sunday or at an event. I genuinely care about each of them and what's going on in their lives." - Rachel
"What a blessing it has been to watch our girls form friendships and then learn to make those friendships matter. To see them support one another, encourage one another, and love each other well. They actively participate in group discussions. They are excited to come back the next week and share with us when they learn how to apply something to their lives or, have the chance to share something they learned with someone at school or at home.
Those girls are my heart. I am already sad about the fact that they have move on next year. I am honored that they have felt comfortable enough to share their stories, their struggles, and their praises. I have laughed with them and cried with them, and it has been a blast!" - Dawn
