Jarred Benitez – 2015 Grad

This last year in YMCP was critical to my health, my soul, my passion, my intentionality, and my connection to ministry. Aside from the learning and the connection to others, the space that was created to process was unlike anything I have been a part of.  As one who often feels like an outlier in the church world, it was a joy to hone in and sharpen what makes me unique, weird, and a kingdom bringer. This has been the most impactful tool in my ministry journey so far.  The strategic and intentional format allowed for me as an introvert to thrive, share, be honest, learn, move forward, speak truth and have truth spoken to in a safe yet challenging environment.
