The Goal of Student Ministry

Below is a letter a student gave me a couple weeks back. I shared it with our adult leaders last night, showing all of us that this should be our goal for each student:

I am found and loved.

Always known by God.

And there is somebody to tell me it’s okay and to give me a hug.

And there is somebody who is here for me and cares about how I feel and God is that somebody.

I feel free to tell anyone what I feel. I know I have the strength to make it through the hard times in life.

I am quickly fading from who I used to be to the person I should be.

I am happy to have been born and having a chance to live a life.

And I could cry my heart out and I would have a shoulder to lean on.

(Student, 9th grade.)
