In May 2017 I graduated from Concordia University Wisconsin with a degree in Social Work. It has always been my dream to have a career helping young people, but I wasn’t sure how best to pursue my passion. I decided to volunteer with Kingdom Workers the summer following my graduation and spent six weeks volunteering on the Apache reservation. While there I learned about the Apache culture, gardening, and the Kingdom Workers mission and vision. I loved how I was able to help others while also sharing the gospel. When I heard there was an opportunity to work for Kingdom Workers full-time at the Lighthouse Youth Center, I knew I had to apply.
Lighthouse Youth Center offers young people between the ages of 10-18 the opportunity to grow intellectually and spiritually. This is achieved through daily personal growth activities, dedicated homework time, devotions, and emphasis on long-lasting relationships with peers and staff. The partnership with Kingdom Workers has allowed Lighthouse to expand the range of programs offered. We recently were able to start a girls’ leadership group and a one-to-one mentoring program that connects youth with positive role models. Both programs encourage young people to stay spiritually active, become Christian leaders, and pursue the education and careers God has in store for them.
New programs like this would not be possible without your prayers and generous gifts. I urge you to prayerfully consider joining my support team by making a monthly recurring gift. Thank you for considering and thank you to everyone who has already chosen to support me and make this possible. Your prayers and financial support have a huge impact on the lives of these kids and their futures. To God be the glory!
