You can say that again. I don’t know where I belong. I’m here at a church that has a total of eight youth and already has three youth workers! I feel useless, except for my warm body that is only needed to act as a chaperone on the occasional youth outing.
So, I decided to become proactive.
“What is it, Kious?”
“I really long to use the gifts and calling the Lord has given me for His honor and glory. I want to help with the youth … I really do. But you’ve already got three youth workers … plus, Amanda. What if I led a midweek Bible study for women? A study that concentrated on a different woman of the Bible each session focusing on God’s grace in each of their lives. I see it becoming an evangelistic opportunity where the study could meet in one of the women’s homes and they could invite their non-Christian friends to a non-threatening environment where they can see the Gospel not only taught each time but also lived through the lives of each of the women.”
How could a pastor say ”no” …
