What does taking the next step in our faith look like? I was talking to one of my Student Pastor friends about this the other day and we came to these three conclusions:
Take a warm cup of water, add ice, and it becomes cold. The same is true for the opposite. Take a cup of ice, pour hot water in, and it melts.

The temperature rises and falls with how we treat the contents of the glass.

Three lucky student pastors received a $1200 grant for their youth group while two other lucky student pastors won free FOLLOW ’12 t-shirts for their entire group! Here is A-Town A-List’s official promo video: Read the rest of this entry

FUEL is a Youth Leaders convention held every 2 years for the Wesleyan Church. It is a time of refreshing, refocusing, networking for the student ministry pastors in the denomination.
