Today has been an exciting yet exhausting day. The first day of the 2012-2013 EDGE internship here at ELEVATE and VWC. I was talking to a new friend of mine a few months ago and he shared with the the advice that he had gotten from a seasoned youth pastor. "You've got to have a place in your ministry where you are training up radical leaders." That to me, is what the EDGE is all about. Ten months of total submersion of a student's life in the word, church, and presence of God, learning, growing and stretching to become all that God called them to be. It never ceases to amaze me how faithful God is to bring incredilble change into the lives of student who are willing and available.
This year promises to be unlike any other. We are pulling out all the stops! I have such anticipation for the "radical" things that God will do. The best way I can describe it is there has been a stirring in my spirit to pour out my life into those who God brings here. If you're out there and want to become a "radical" leader then maybe you should consider joining the EDGE. Sure it's probably too late this year, but you've got about Ten months to get yourself prepared. Go to the ELEVATE web site and get all the info. even fill out your application. Start Now and stay tuned. Much love. -pw
