Personal Goal: To develop healthy trusting relationships with the congregation through a variety of mission/service opportunities, personal growth times, and social activities so that they might 1) begin to see their identity and responsibility in God's plan, 2) develop a love and compassion for unbelievers, and 3) enjoy their youth in a variety of experiences which encourage strong, positive friendships during the difficult teen years, with the prayer that they will become effective leaders and humble servants in God's kingdom for His glory
