Youth Ministry Coordinator Update:

Thank you, thank you, thank you to those of you who have responded to my emails or phone calls! I’ve loved chatting with you and learning about what you’re doing with your groups!  Keep those messages coming.  Weather you have 1 youth or 100 youth, I love hearing how things are going for you!  We have some awesome things happening around the state!  What a blessing you’re being to teens all over Nebraska.

          I’d ask that you’d prayerfully consider helping with Kamp Kaleo this summer.  This is a time to be the hands and feet for Christ and make a lasting impact on a young persons’ life.  Please don’t wait to be asked, I understand that’s great, but we love hearing from people too.  God may be nudging you to take the first step.

          Please keep Kamp Kaleo and all that attend, volunteer and work there in your prayers this summer.  Pray also for those students that just graduated from high school as they prepare for a whole new journey to begin.

          Please contact me if you’re interested in serving on the youth council, I’m looking for 2 adults to join the group and there are still student spots available too, so if you have a student in your program that you think would like to learn more about this opportunity, let me know.                 ~Kristy Horstman, Youth Ministry Coordinator
