We Asked, You Answered: Why Do You Work With Youth?

By Connect Staff, June 29, 2016

Gary Paschal, Chi Alpha Campus Ministries, U.S.A.

“Working with university and college students, as well as our ministry staff team, brings great joy and energy to my life. I am convinced these students are change agents for both society and the world. Their energy, devotion and passion stir my faith and give me hope for revival.”

Danielle Sullivan, Student Life

“When I was in high school, I volunteered my summers to work at a local summer camp. I loved it, but more than that, I enjoyed and appreciated the adults who invested in me and helped mold me into the person I am today. After more than 20 years of being involved in camp ministry, I continue to serve teenagers in hopes they will have experiences that mold them into the person Christ desires.”

Josiah Gorman, Bible Bowl

“I work with children and teens because I believe the gospel of Jesus Christ changes lives. The sooner people encounter Jesus Christ, the sooner they will begin to follow the Lord. I believe a great deal of positive change is created in the world because of Bible Bowl. Our students become familiar with the Word of God and thus do his will.”
