After sitting here for the past few months this year I have been thinking about what I would love to do that could help the world. I currently attend a great church where some of the best preachers come in and preach. About two months ago one of them told me that I will be a youth minister to help spread the word of God. I set around for a month after that reading the bible and thinking that I really would love to be a youth pastor. So I am currently attending Grand Canyon University majoring in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in youth ministry. While making a living preaching to the youth in all surrounding communities I plan to make a great impact to both the youth and the community. I say this because if we as pastors and parent would teach all kids the bible and the meaning of the bible I believe we would have less problems in the world. For example, I was talking to a sixteen year old boy at work the other day and he told me he has never been to church before or even touched a bible. I sat down with him and told him a few important things out of the bible and why God died on the cross for him and he told me to pick him up when I go to church. The boy was a drug head and has been to jail twice for possession and after he went to church and got saved he is now drug free and participates in all activities at the church he attends. I feel like if I can do this for one person I can do it for more. I believe that as a youth minister I can do many community events and invite all the youth in that town and minister to them and then just have fun and show them that church is not just a place to come and hear the word of God and go home, but you can come hear the word and have fun. I believe that getting more kids in church it will change their life and I believe that there will be less problems in the world with the youth.
