A few weeks ago, I interviewed for and was later offered the position as Director of Student Ministries for Faith Presbyterian Church in McHenry, Illinois. I’m very excited to have this opportunity. Everyone at Faith has already been so welcoming and encouraging. I’ll still be a full time graduate student at Trinity. My primary responsibilities will be overseeing the church’s youth group with middle and high school students, but it’ll include other opportunities, such as occasionally preaching. My first official day in this position will be this upcoming Sunday.
It’ll be the second time I’ve served in this type of capacity, but with more life experience and more formal theological education now than then, I’m really looking forward to working with these students. Early in the semester, I had decided to start looking for a position within a church, and after having a few conversations, I knew I was interested in joining this church.
