Greetings from the Montreat Youth Conference!  I had the chance to come up for the first half of the week to spend time with our group from Westminster, and I am loving it!

The youth spend time in morning keynotes, evening worship, small groups with strangers who quickly become friends, and reflection and prayer time with their home church group.

Being here for a few days has me reflecting on the times I spent here as a youth and the ways God used those summers to shape my life and help me grow in faith.  Now, as I am here with our youth group, including my two teenagers, I’m giving thanks for the church that continues to pour Jesus into the lives of young people.

Join me in that prayer of thanksgiving, and pray God will use this week in meaningful ways to shape the minds, hearts, and lives of the students gathered here.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Daniel
