Katrina Bitar, Director of Youth Equipped to Serve (YES), shares how service learning engages youth in the living work of the Church. Katrina explores how to invest in emerging leaders by:
Speaking the truth in love (Eph 4:15)
Leaning into the "good uncomfortable" to allow stretching and growing
Examining our own motivations for wanting young people in the church
Katrina suggests that just because kids are participating in church activities doesn't mean that they have encountered Christ. Young people need to be trusted and engaged in doing the living work of Christ.
