Youth Group

I have been actively involved in our youth group ever since I was allowed to be a part of it.  We have had our ups and downs as a group and as a church, but I feel that we are really doing some great stuff as of recently.  Our youth pastor and his wife just left about 5 months ago.  They had been a part of the group for 2 years and had done a great job turning things back around after things had been twisted all out of shape from some tough times.  They were in charge of the middle school and high school ministries.  Now that they have left, we have hired a new middle school pastor Erin.  So far, he has done a great job with the 6th, 7th and 8th graders.  He is full of energy and he makes everything fun for kids at the midweek study.  He also is very interested in having many "outside of church" for the kids and also getting them involved with other ministries that our church has to offer.  Our highs school ministry, which I am a part of, is doing great.  We have hired a interim youth pastor, Mynor.  He is great and is getting to know all of us very well.  He is very committed to having a COMMUNITY in the group.  I think that this is great for all of us to think about.  The different "clicks" that are associated with any place that has many teenagers in it, are something that we want to get rid of.  I also have been noticing that our group is becoming more and more composed of new comers.  I think that this is something that has needed to happen for a long time and now that it is finally becoming a reality, I feel as if our group is beginning to take shape.
