Classes, Challenges, Goals....

Hey everybody, Well its been one week at Global so far and i'm loving it, The classes are good and i have my job down so now its just time to get into it all!

I have 5 classes on Mondays and Tuesdays I have Contemporary Christian life and Practice (cclp), and Youth on a Mission (yom). In cclp we will be learning about what it looks like to live every area of your life like a Christian. Going in depth on topics like vacation, time and resource management, Marriage and relationships, conflict resolution, evangelism, church involvement, Christian world view, devotional life and physical wellness. In (yom) we will be seeking the special and unique calling God has placed in all our lives, and how it applies in different settings in our lives, and how we can use it to spread Gods love with everyone in our lives.
On Wednesday I have Global Perspectives. In this class we will develop biblically based strategies for becoming involved to accomplish his plan, and see how pressures from all other areas of our life impact our witness.
On Thursdays, we have Student Leadership. We will be learning about Biblical models of leadership and theological basis of leadership and developing our character and discipline.
Second class on Thursday is Life Leadership/ Youth Ministry/ Mission Mentors. Our teacher for this class is Steve Dusek, a local youth pastor in Ellijay. He will be teaching us about all the ins and outs of everyday DOING. So after we are done with school its not all just head knowledge, we will have practice in putting our hearts and mind to actions to help spread God's love and word.

Well that's what school will look like for me this semester.
I again want to thank everyone who helped make it possible for me to come to Global! Also for all the prayers.

God has a unique plan for all of us as Christians. No matter how shy, outgoing, quirky, funny, intelligent or any other thing you might be. I would like to encourage everyone out there to look into your circumstances and instead of seeing them in the worlds view, look at it through God's eyes.

Makes a difference, spread His love. That is my first challenge and goal.
So grow with me!

I love you all!!
