I had no idea what a year of YMCP would hold as I walked into our meeting area that first day. I was nervous-excited about meeting youth ministers who were just like me. Professionally, I learned a different way of doing youth ministry, more so than what my master’s degree taught me. Personally, I learned what my gifts are and how I can use them in my role. I also learned a great deal about myself! I am going to miss being in a holy place and being fed every other month at our meetings; and I am going to miss people speaking life into me; and I am going to miss the FUN that our group had!
