BASE and QUEST (grades 6-8)

It is probably no surprise that I love the middle school age and stage of life. This is a crucial time of development for young people and I think it is a privilege to walk alongside youth and families at such a time as this.

The Church serves as a safe landing place for middle schoolers when so much is changing and happening around them. It cannot be overemphasized how important it is to have a faithful community, especially during middle school years.
