Camp Create 2012

Camp Create is over for 2012. All in all, it was a great week. I was able to help out with a lot of different areas this year. In addition to the usual taking photos and videos, and looking out for our middle school students in the afternoon, I also provided oversight the dance class…

Ministry Update: Busy Days Ahead

I apologize for not blogging much. In the past several weeks, I have been a bit overwhelmed. Between mission trip fundraising/planning, getting ready for camp, and all other student ministry stuff this summer, I have been quite busy. It doesn’t stop, though. We are almost finished with Camp Create at RCC. After that, I will…

Baptism from April 3, 2011

Yesterday, I was able to baptize another student in our youth group. He’s an awesome kid, and I’m really looking forward to what God is going to do through him. This is just another time when I am reminded of how awesome my job is. Thank you God for this blessing!! For some reason, WordPress.com…

Celil Refik Kaya

Celil Refik Kaya, a friend of our lead minister’s daughter performed at RCC on March 6, 2011. He played several songs, and this is one of them. He is an amazing classically trained guitar player from the country of Turkey, and there is a really good chance you will see and hear a lot more…

Excited About RCC’s First Elders

On January 16, 2011, Rockingham Christian Church made a big step forward in commissioning our first elders! This completes the process from us being a new church that depended on others to a church who completely supports itself internally. That’s so cool. God seems to be moving and working in our growing church. Why does…

New RCC Student Ministry Website

This week, I finally decided to move the RCC Students’ website from a WordPress.com site to a WordPress.org site. While this might not mean anything to many of you, I’ll explain it a bit. Essentially, it is still the same, except for a few big things. Instead of being hosted on a free site, we…

WorkcampNE Reflections

This past week, I was up in Maine with 15 students and 3 other adults for Workcamp New England. Basically, it is a service project week for high school students. If it helps, think of it as a mission trip right in the United States. Ever year, the location changes, but the purpose is still…

Thoughts Behind Summer Programming

As many already know, our student ministry programming takes a different look in the summer.  We do not simply cancel our weekly programs; we just take another approach.  There are many reasons behind this.  Another youth minister, who serves at a church in Michigan, recently put together some of his thoughts on why they similarly…
