1 Pastor, 6 Interns And A Whole Lot of Excitement

About a year ago, I was given the privilege to launch a young adult ministry – The Crossing. This was a pretty big step for us (New Life Church) because we had never had a full time young adult ministry and the though of adding this sort of ministry was not something that happened without a great deal of dialogue and thought.

Looking back a year later I am incredibly happy with what we have accomplished.

  • 70-80 college students and young professionals engaged regularly in ministry
  • 5 small groups
  • Small groups that go out and serve the community together
  • Regular events and service projects
  • An incredible group of leaders
  • multiple services each month
  • etc. etc. etc.

It’s been a great year!

But this coming fall is a whole new ball game. Here’s why…

  • at least 6 interns
  • weekly services
  • regular presence on 4 college campuses
  • increasing from 5 small groups to 7 or 8
  • Bringing in incredible guest speakers
  • the possibility of a weekly leadership class
  • new branding
  • the establishment of The Crossing as a community ministry, by partnering with other churches/young adult ministries

So while we have a great thing going, We’re kicking things up about 10 notches this fall. Oh it’s going to be a fun ride!
