Youth Ministry – June 2015

youth-ministry

Hello! My name is Brian Ellis and I am the new youth director at Rockford Reformed Church. I am very excited about the opportunity to begin working with the youth group and would like to take a moment to tell you a little about myself. My parents, sister, and I have lived in Rockford my entire life, and have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this community. I am an avid sports fan and enjoy watching, playing, or talking about a variety of sports. I am also interested in outdoor activities such as camping and kayaking. Currently I am a senior at Kuyper College where I study youth ministry. I have been gaining youth ministry experience for the last 5 years, 4 of which were as an intern. Over that time my passion for youth ministry has continued to grow. I love having a job that allows me to walk alongside our youth as they explore their life and their faith. I look forward to getting to know you all!

Our first event of the summer, the Middle School bonfire, went well with over 20 kids in attendance. The High School bonfire is scheduled for July 22, location still to be determined.
