Kade has worked outside the church since 2009 and has waited for God to open the door to serve in youth
ministry at a Baptist church again.
This young generation of students is so vital in the Kingdom and God’s army. Our vision for this generation is
to see these students wake up to the reality of their world and recognize the brokenness that is in and around
them. In Mark 14, when Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane with His disciples, He gave them a command
that has stuck with us. He told them to pray and get ready so they would not fall into temptation; instead they
slept. We look at this passage today and wonder, “How could the disciples sleep in such a crucial time in
history? How could the disciples have so much revelation of who Christ was and who He was destined to be
and still fall asleep?” Many Christian students all over the world are in this same state of sleeping. While they
know and have experienced Jesus, they are doing nothing with it.
What would have happened if the disciples would have obeyed and prayed and prepared for the war that the
enemy was bringing to Jesus? We will never know because they slept and the consequence of sleeping was they were not ready for the battle that came when they awoke. We believe this generation of students is asleep and running from the call of God and needs to be awakened unto the war at hand. We feel that we are called to sound the alarm and wake up this generation and call them to go on the offense. Our purpose in every ministry is to have students redeemed, see broken hearts healed and to encourage students to become lovers of Jesus Christ at all cost.
