Youth

A Message from Your New Youth Ministry Director, Allison Milliron


What a JOYFUL year it has been for our Youth Ministry! As I continue to lead, I’d like to help you know me a bit better by sharing some of my values, passions, strengths, trials, & calling:


VALUES: I value a spirit of excellence, faithfulness & grace in myself and others. I believe a team approach to ministry has better chances of success, and I look forward to serving with you as we seek to grow our youth ministry. I value learning from you as well as refreshing you through my ministry and witness.

PASSIONS: I have a passion for helping youth discover who God has created them to be and to encourage them to use their unique gifts for His divine purposes. I am passionate about helping youth plant the Word in their heart through Scripture memorization. I also have a passion for visual art, for worship, and for mission.

STRENGTHS: I serve best using my artistic creativity, my heart for evangelism, my counseling & listening skills, my visioning & leadership ability, my small-group facilitation skills, and my worship gifts. My training and experience build on these personality strengths. I also serve through my weaknesses, with God’s help, knowing that my weaknesses keep me ever dependent on His Grace.

TRIALS: I have had some physical injuries that I’ve had to surmount. I’ve had numerous surgeries on my feet due to an act of malpractice and procedures on my back due to a car accident. This means that I have difficulty running, jumping, and lifting heavy objects. But oh, just watch me dance! It’s a sight to behold! ☺

CALLING: One of my favorite verses is Luke 22:27 where Jesus said, “I am among you as one who serves.” I began my ministry in Brazil serving as a missionary doing both physical labor and evangelistic work. It was there that I heard a call to ministry to be God’s hands and feet using art, speech & service to proclaim His love. I have a servant’s heart, willing to serve in whatever way God calls me, and I work hard to serve with excellence. Saying “Yes” to serving where God calls me also means that I must say “No” to serving where God has NOT called me, or saying “Not Yet” if God’s timing is not right. With a church of our size, I cannot possibly meet the personal expectations of each individual. I will give my all to the work appointed to me by God, by the Staff Parish Relations Committee, and by the Pastor.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Updates will be posted soon!
