Ever since I became a Christian in college, I've always wanted to serve the youth. Prior to becoming a Christian, my greatest vision in life was to have maximum fun without any hindrance in college and then ultimately join the military where I could fulfill my need to "live for something greater than myself". (It seems a bit paradoxical, but it was my grand plan).
God proved to have other plans for me by challenging my faith in college and showing me that being a Christian is an all-consuming identity and serving Him is the most fulfilling and best way to live my life.
Looking back at my years as a youth, I wish someone could have shared the gospel with me and steered me toward Christianity earlier in life. Now I have a chance to be that person, and I joined Crossway's youth group with the hope that I could be a source of encouragement and love for our students.
