Featured Resource- Transfer Live

Have you ever desired for practical training for your youth leaders to take place, but do not have the budget to take them to some mega conference? I know I have. Training is something that is lacking in our youth leaders. We create these teams of really cool leaders who care for students, but many still struggle with creating effective small groups that can see life change. Word of Life has provided a resource that can help you train your leaders inexpensively. Check this out! I want to share with you a free resource that you are going to love! … Continue reading Featured Resource- Transfer Live

WOL Camp Update #4

It is Thursday here at camp. Well, it is Thursday back home as well, but you know what I mean! Thursday for camp means the next to the last day of camp. 😦 This is the day that we begin to pack and prepare for home with the hope that the next day and a half will go by very slow, because this week has been so good. I have loved watching our students make decisions for the Lord and worship Him during the services. They have come out of their comfort zone, and made life change decisions. I wanted … Continue reading WOL Camp Update #4

International Teens Involved Results

International Teens Involved (ITI) is a program sponsored by Word of Life to help train students to develop their gifts and abilities for the church and the Lord’s glory. Union Grove has been involved in Teens Involved (no pun intended) for many years. It has been a great ministry and we have seen the Lord use this program to develop our students. We always remind our students that it is not about a competition, but about the perfecting and developing of our gifts. We had a great group participate, and here are the entries that placed in ITI: Sr High … Continue reading International Teens Involved Results

WOL Camp Update #3

Good afternoon! It is Tuesday afternoon, and I am sitting here reflecting on camp and what God has already done. Many of us leaders have said that this has already been one of our best years of camp. First off, we have a great group! The group has gone with the flow through everything, and we have not received any complaining which is awesome. We were not sure how many of our students would react to camp considering many of them are first timers here at camp. Many of them are younger as well, but they have adjusted very well. … Continue reading WOL Camp Update #3

WOL Camp Update #1

Good Sunday morning everybody! Josh here giving you all an update on Word of Life Camp. What an amazing week it has already been. It started with us leaving at 1 am on Friday morning. We drove through the night (12 hours) without breaking down! Anytime you are in a church bus, that is always a plus :)! Most of our students stayed up all night which was interesting, but they were all great. I will say no more energy drinks on these trips! Just kidding, I love the energy and excitement that these students bring. We stopped at Cracker … Continue reading WOL Camp Update #1
