Simply put, I am: Adopted, Only Child, Christian, A man who has a heart for youth and the issues that they face every day. I am finishing up my College education in Youth ministry. I also was a competitive swimmer from grade 2-7 then joined recreational till grade 12 then began coaching. I joined recreational in Grade 8 so that I could pursue Theatre and the Arts more and became very comfortable with the stage and my projection skills. I also pursued music and know how to play trumpet, Bass, Jembe (as well as other assorted hand percussion), as well as singing. I did a semester in Rosebud School of the Arts but was called away to pursue Youth ministry.
Youth! Youth issues in culture. Youth spirituality, and Self Awareness.
It would benefit youth to be more involved in the church for these three reasons: 1. It challenges them to be more aware of who they are spiritually 2. The church teaches stronger morals than schools do and there are people who are more willing and adept to giving that wisdom to youth when parents, family, teachers are not 3. It takes a community to grow a child to become wise and self aware. Youth today are spending far to much time on their own, rejecting their parents and peers and filling their heads with nonsense from movies, video games and straight up MEDIA! Their communication skills between each other and with adults is lacking because they are not being shown what a loving, growing and wise community looks like. Youth are turning to porn, drugs, alcohol, stupid stunts and carelessness to fill the void that is within them caused by the lack of being poured into by elders who know where they stand in their faith who are wiling to walk along side and not oppress.
Youth issues in society. Youth issues in the church
Counselling and understanding the heart of an issue before sharing my advice and help.
I fell in love with the organization that promotes the sharing of wisdom and ideas and talents so that world history, culture and knowledge will not be lost and will be easier for people to access. I noticed that there are very few talks on Youth and I would love to be a part of that in TED future.
