Supporting Our Youth and Families
Jason, 16, lives in two homes. One week he lives with his mom and younger sister; the other week with his dad and step mom and their baby. Jason’s life is filled with constant change. Everything from figuring out which house his sports equipment is at, trying to manage being the youngest grade in high school, and trying to find a part-time job so he can afford drivers education.
All this is overwhelming for Jason.
In First Third ministries we support our lay and volunteer staff in churches so they can provide a space where Jason feels at home, is reminded often that he is a beloved child of God, can laugh and learn, be with friends, and experience a lively community of faith. This is why First Third ministry leaders are critical to congregational life.
