IT’S A NEW CHAPTER!

We are bringing Chris Fuller in to serve on our Stillmeadow Ministry Team as our youth and young adult minister. Chris will be assuming his first official ministry duties on July 1 and will join us at Remix on July 2. He will then join us for Mission Week!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU TO OUR YOUTH MINISTRY TEAM!

Our youth ministry team has been incredible in this last year, shepherding our youth through this transition process, helping them follow Christ and love others. We thank Casey Harrison and Heath Grim for their leadership of Remix, Nate Voorhees for his leadership of Stillmeadow Teen University, Natalie Staley for her leadership as NYI President. And all the other youth workers and parents who have continued to serve in the transition time, we thank God for you!

 

THE OFFICIAL TITLE IS “YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT MINISTER”

The Church of the Nazarene has a development process for pastors that begins with receiving a local minister’s license from the local church. It continues with the process of receiving a district pastor’s license from the Mid-Atlantic District Church of the Nazarene. Then after fulfilling service time and education requirements, the district recommends the person with their district pastor’s license to be ordained by the General Church of the Nazarene.  Chris will be starting with us as I did, with a local minister’s license. We will recommend him to our district pastoral licensing process and the earliest he may receive his district license would be April 2019. At that point, his title will shift to “Pastor Chris Fuller!” In the meantime, we shall call him Chris, our Youth and Young Adult Minister.

 

CHANGES ARE COMING!

One of the reasons we’re bringing Chris from outside the Stillmeadow Family is that we are in a season of recalibration. We are adjusting our habits and structures so that we can best follow Christ together in these days. This means that Chris will help guide the youth ministry team through an evaluation of our current programs and events. They will work together to strengthen our strengths and improve on our weaknesses so that we can continue Jesus’ mission within youth ministries. We remain committed to providing the best opportunities for youth to experience and grow in Christ's love and character. Because of this, we may end or edit current events or programs, or add new events or programs. Change is good but not always easy, so please lift Chris and the youth ministry team up in prayer as they collaboratively seek God’s wisdom.

 

WHY YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY?

Since each life stage is a unique opportunity to engage people in the mission of Christ, we want to be more intentional about how we engage our young adults in discipleship once they graduate from high school. Chris will be putting together a team to engage this age and provide opportunities to connect and follow Christ together. Please be in prayer for young adults and for the right leaders to be in place for this ministry.

 

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1.       Pray! We’ve been praying through this transition process and we aren’t finished until Christ comes again. Let’s continue to submit our hearts and our work to His kingdom and His vision.

2.       Help Welcome Chris and his wife Emily

a.       We’re going to do a “gift card” shower to help ease the transition. If you’d like to give grocery gift cards (Weis or Giant) or Lowes, please drop them in an envelope in the drop box in the foyer or the youth drop box on the youth booth.

b.      We don’t know when he will actually move his stuff in, but when we do, we’d love to have help unloading the moving truck!

c.       Please continue in prayer for Chris and Emily as they work through the details of moving out to join us in our efforts to ministry with youth and young adults.

3.       Prayerfully consider becoming involved in youth or young adult ministry

Parents

We welcome your presence

The youth ministry maintains an “open door” policy toward parents. You are welcome to visit one of our programs at any time. We want you to see for yourself what your student is experiencing week to week. You can take a closer look at our events and various classes by downloading our current Parent Guide HERE.

We value your input

Feel free to share your input, concerns, questions, comments, and observations with our staff. We want to partner with you in any way we can.

WE HAVE A PARENT GROUP FOR THAT

Parenting teens is one the greatest human joys.
It is also one of the hardest human tasks.

We want parents to succeed. So Burdette and Nedra Lahr have stepped up to lead a group dedicated to helping parents navigate the years between 6th through 12th grade.

Every Sunday at 11AM while our 6-12 graders are meeting in Stillmeadow Teen University, we have a group designed by two parents of teenagers for other parents of young people. Sign up at HERE

We encourage your involvement

We are ALWAYS on the lookout for parents who have a special place in their heart for teens and are open to joining our volunteer team. Our volunteers help run events, lead small groups, organize ministry opportunities, and more. If you would like to be involved on a regular basis, we’d love to talk to you personally! 

We need your stuff

This doesn’t happen often, but occasionally we need to borrow something that we simply can’t provide on our own. Camping gear, sports equipment, mini vans, vacation homes and the like are items that you may be willing to loan out on occasion to help us in a pinch.

WE ARE PUTTING TOGETHER A REMIX SNACK TEAM

We are searching for parents/guardians to help us out with our snacks for Remix on Tuesday nights. If interested, please click HERE
