If you're looking for a place to serve at church, have you considered youth ministry? Whether with infants, kids or teens, there are many opportunities for all types of giftings. According to our panel of student and children's ministry staff, you don't have to be cool or athletic to work with kids; you just need to show up. Listen in for some ideas that will inspire you to get involved with youth or wherever else the Lord may lead.
Called to Stay
Guests: Caleb Breakey
Caleb Breakey used to judge his church. In fact, he was kind of fed up with it. That's before God worked on his heart and mind, challenging him to confess his bad attitude (let's just call it "sin") and instead plug into his church and start loving people right where they were. His transformation led to Called to Stay, a book that will challenge your assumptions about church, and convince you that Jesus' love for His bride is enough to draw us to her.
