Titus Project

The Titus project is a 12 week activity designed to teach service and leadership to our 3rd - 12th graders. It has been going on since the end of January and it has been amazing! My friend Nikki and I are huddle leaders for a group of 8th grade boys. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these young men even more. It has been a joy serving and learning along with these guys.

Each night begins with dinner and and ice breaker questions. We then move on to discussion questions regarding a certain Bible story. After that we move on to another activity. For the first four weeks the middle schoolers participated in different service projects. I especially enjoyed our trip to the local homeless shelter where we picked up kids and brought them back to our church to join us for our meal. After eating and hanging out with them for a bit we went back to the shelter where we learned more about the shelter itself. The next week we made baskets filled with games and toys to take to the shelter. It was heart warming to watch our teens love on the kids.

These guys keep us on our toes, for sure, but I am really excited about the next several weeks. My prayer is that these young men will get a taste of how they can use their God-given talents to bless our church and community.
