Truth Talk, The Christian Worldview Institute has launched "Truth Talk", a summer youth program for high school students. The program consists of weekly faith discussions and paying jobs to help the students prepare for Christian adulthood. Teams of teenagers will do residential maintenance — initially odd jobs outside the home.
We are looking for adults to serve as supervisors to accompany the students as they go out to job sites. This is a great opportunity for ministry to young people one-on-one. We need both men and women. All volunteers will be trained and screened in accordance with our Child Protection Policy. To volunteer or find out more, contact Jan Beckett at 580-5179.
If you have a prayer request please use this email link to reach Marie Carstensen, coordinator. Your request will be included on the Light of Christ prayer chain. It is among our greatest blessings that we may approach the throne of God with supplications and thanksgivings.
