What was it that happened after the wedding day that made sex suddenly okay? But because my sexuality was connected to my body and my soul, sinning sexually had consequences that no other sin could. We’re asking, “How far is too far,” instead of, “Why are we committed to waiting in the first place?

What was the point of waiting for marriage for sex if we were just going to fool around with our boyfriends? When we talked about sex at youth group I would always get the same explanations: “Your body is a precious treasure and you need to treat it accordingly.” “Sex is a gift that you only get to give away once.” These explanations didn’t satisfy me. And eventually jumped right over the line when I didn’t see the point in skirting around it anymore. I was living in sin with my boyfriend and it sounded kind of like he was yelling at me. I read the passage he was talking about from 1 Corinthians. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.” Suddenly it made sense to me. But the thing that helped me more than anything else was being able to ask honest questions, and knowing there were people who would try to answer them.
The process also shows you how to implement that vision and put metrics in place to evaluate what is moving the vision forward and what isn't.
Other youth ministers, wanting to experience the same growth in their groups, would ask me for tips on how to reach and connect with students.
The growth of the youth group was so significant that our church was pursuing the purchase of a bus and considering plans to expand the facility and build a gym. I had no doubt that God had called me to the position and that he had even greater things in store for the ministry and for me. Because of that problem, I am now in prison and the youth group is back on life support.
The Youth Leader Council (or YLC for short) is a group of middle and high school students of all abilities who have been identified as stellar student leaders. The 2016-2017 YLC will kick off at a weekend-long orientation at Camp Hemlocks in Hebron, CT.
They must have been student leaders at some point during their UT days, not necessarily within the past year. All travel, accommodations, and food costs for the weekend will be paid by Unified Theater.
