Q: Favorite Youth Ministry moment?

A:  If I had to pick, it would be when I threw up in front of 35 grade 5/6 students while I was a judge for a baking competition.  Not that spiritual... but hey, memories were made and it was a discussion point with these student for months.  That was the first AND LAST time I put a piece of cake made with Sardines in my mouth.

Q: Favorite Youth Ministry moment?

A: All of them! -

One funny moment would probably be the Lion Head Story- Because that's how everything really got started. I used to ( Well, still do..) believe if you are going to do something: Go big or don’t do anything at all! It was my first Wednesday of doing 5/6 ministry without a lead Pastor there and I wanted to make sure the night was awesome for the kids. So instead of telling the story of Daniel and the Lion's den from a normal human perspective, I wanted to tell it from a lion's perspective. Now, there is a GIANT lionhead in the church...

Q: Favorite Youth Ministry moment?
A: At our in:town retreat last year, we went to Monster Mini Golf, and I remember seeing students playing one of those scam games that no one ever wins, and they were trying to put a key through a hole so that they could win one of the cool prizes (iPad, iPod Touch, Galaxy Tab, Nintendo DS). I thought to myself I need to get these kids away from this machine because they are going to waste all of their money. I walked up and the students began chanting my name… and all of a sudden I WAS ALSO PLAYING THE GAME! 🤦🏾‍♂️ After about my fifth try I ended up winning the Nintendo DS and felt SO AMAZING.. this is where my gambling addiction began. Haha… JK.
