I need to say that since that youth retreat I have been thinking about working with kids. Today I even thought about how cool it would be for us young adults to take over youth group (Pastor Rod actually came to our young adult group tonight and talked to us about that exact thing). It would THRILL me to see us all leading these kids! We’d be using our gifts again, and working like a team, just like at Brick and Amp! I can see how this truly is a new model for American Christians, one where no-one is pressured to do anything but use their gifts as God leads them, but yet there is still an incredibly unified direction. And the key to it all is that we all pray and prophecy for each other when we get together. There is just something that makes us all stronger when we do that.
I would like to take these kids to the Peace Plaza next year and let them lead church, and afterward they can pray and prophesy over people. How cool would that be?!!?!!! YEEHAW!!!!
I have even thought about being a youth pastor. But I would not do it if the old model applied. I would have to be basically the person who is always there, but who really doesn’t do all the work. Much like Brick and Amp, but probably even less work. It is a new model, like I said. God, if this is Your will, please make it happen!
