30til30: Day 17

I have 30 days until I turn 30, so I thought I'd try to choose 30 moments that have helped shape who I am and want to be. Coming up with the list has been challenging...and enlightening. These are in no particular order.

17: Grace Church
Being involved at Grace has changed my life more than anything on this list so far. In fact, most of the things on this list are a direct result of the ministry at Grace. God has definitely used this place to make me into the person I need to be. I have been given the opportunity to try and fail and choose where to serve based on what is rising up in me (I still don't feel like I'm at my final ministry destination, but if this current one ends up being it, I'm good with that). Instead of memories, I'm going to list all of the different roles I've filled at Grace:
  • Youth Chaperone
  • Vacation Bible School Teacher
  • Youth Small Group Leader
  • Youth Drama Club Leader
  • Insight Team Member
  • Insight Team Leader
  • Adult Small Group Leader
  • Creative Team Member
  • Creative Team Leader
  • Service Director
  • Graphic Designer
  • Communications Director
How it shaped me:
  • I can't even put into words how much it has meant to me to serve at Grace. Where else could I have learned all of these skills with such freedom? 
  • I have a vision for where Grace wants to go and I want to be a part of it.
  • I am 100% loyal to this organization. I don't want to be anywhere else and I'll do anything in my power to get us to where we need to be.
  • Being a part of Christian community is the best thing ever.
