Johns Creek Calls Ministers of Children and Youth
October 11, 2018 by Buddy Ray
Johns Creek Christian Church would like to welcome Matt and Christy Marshall to the position of youth ministers. Matt and Christy are stationed at Fort Benning, where Christy is an Active Duty Army Chaplain, taking care of the spiritual needs of approximately 2,000 basic trainees. Matt is an Inactive Reservist in the Army Reserve, soon to transition into Active Duty as a Chaplain. They each have over a decade of experience in various ministries. When asked what they are most excited about in working with the youth of Johns Creek, they shared this: Matt said, "I love working with youth as investment in the future leaders of the church. I'm also passionate about integrating the youth into the ministry of the church as a whole and watching the youth begin to cultivate their gifts and talents for the first time." Christy said, "I'm most excited for the opportunities to invest in the youth including discipleship, being a mentor and reaching out to those in need."
Matt and Christy have already started their work with the youth of JCCC, by teaching Sunday School and by holding discussions at our youth lock-ins. Also, Matt is planning on starting to do a youth choir. They were even brave enough to take the youth group to Six-Flags on Labor Day weekend! We are very excited to call them our new youth ministers.
