Don’t you find it interesting, that the most fulfilled, most joyful, most loved and most successful teens are the ones who’ve found their place in the world?
I mean don’t you find it odd that the teens that are having the times of their lives are the ones who have surrendered their wants, their selfish desires and any personal gain for the fame of their Creator?
The teenagers who have totally and completely changed their life, gone against the status quo, and have purposed to do hard things, well, those are the people that are really going somewhere.
This is my passion: I love teenagers, (not to mention I am one) and I’ve always had an awareness of their potential for greatness. I know the kinds of things we can accomplish, and my heart breaks when one of my peers wastes his first few years away by living up to this culture’s low standards and expectations.
I want to elect and inspire you, yes YOU, to decide and aspire for great things, to recognize your amazing and sacred potential, and to take up the gauntlet of opportunity stated in 1 Timothy 4:12 (“Let no one despise your youth; instead, you should be an example to the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity“) AND 1 Corinthians 10:31 (“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for God’s glory”).
I want to encourage you to live every day like it might be your last.
I want to inspire you to pursue your projects and dreams NOW and to no longer continually push them back in excuse.
I want to create a community of young people who defy the average, low-expectations of that come with being a teen.
I want to give “being a teenager”, a good reputation, and finally raise up a brand new generation of God-fearing, Christ-seeking individuals who go into the world like arrows, ready to push back the kingdom of darkness.
So. Will you join me?
Are you brave enough to put down the video game controller and pick up your Bible, regardless of what you will have to sacrifice?
Are you self-less enough to take a break from your social media accounts and invest in the lives of your family instead of your followers?
Are you truly ready to become a modern day disciple of Jesus Christ instead of willingly giving your soul to the forces of darkness who want nothing more than to stop you from fulfilling God’s Will for your life?
God is calling you for more than likes, follows and lazy days on the couch, are you ready?
