So as of last night, it is official, I was hired (for my 2nd job)!!!
I am now a youth pastor at a local church. :)
My bestie has been the youth pastor there for the past 6 months, but when she moved away they needed someone else. I never in a million years would consider myself for the position, but since I had helped out chaperoning and the kids know me (and the pastor has known me since I was in 1st grade) they asked me. And suprisingly I said yes. I didn't think I would ever be cut out for this, nor would I want to do it, but when they asked all I could feel was excitement. I think partly I'm looking forward to it because it's similar to teaching, which I am itching to start. I get to create and teach lessons, I get to decorate a youth room, and I get to be with some amazing kids every Sunday. :) My heart is full and happy!
I start this Sunday, so I have about 3 days to come up with a lesson, but my pastor has helped me greatly and I have a bunch of material from high school when I was a co-leader in a bible styudy group, so I'm not too, too worried. Although if any of yall have some advice on fun games to play with some high schoolers, that would be awesome! Please share!!!
I'm really looking forward to this new chapter. Thanks for letting me share with yall!
