Upcoming Events outside the UBA


Not sure how to say it but last night was amazing.  I was brought to tears more than once as I saw the church come together, roll up their sleeves and package 37,728 meals.  And servants hearts abounded in the building last night.

We saw a great problem occur, we had more people attend than registered for the UBA and for WU. Please thank the adults who stepped back and let your students do the work.  That is what made everything work out.  I know you understand that as a youth leader already.  


I wanted to share the people numbers also.

UBA & Council Members  -  5

WU Staff   - 3

Wingate Students - 165

Ground 40  - 7

Feeding Children Everywhere – 6

UBA Students and Leaders – 257

Grand Total  444


Give His Praise.  As I watched the truck leaving last night about 8:45 with the food on it, I thought of you the leaders, for caring, promoting, bringing, working , serving and giving, yes verbs are action words in the kingdoms work.  Thanks seems so small to say, but I pray that your heart was filled with love and the project gave your group a chance to minister to our county and spread His love even though we will never see any of the recipients most likely.

Please share that the staff from FCE were so impressed and shared how nice and great your teams were to work with.  Please express to your entire congregation thanks.  This was a massive project and together we did it with His blessing.

On behalf of the UBA Youth Council,  it was great to join with you and we hope you will be a part of more of the things we are working on at this time in the UBA. “The Event” in the Fall, OCC in  Nov, early Dec. and some other new ideas that we would like to roll out in the future. 

Please let the council know if we can help in any way.  Feel free to call Bessie at 704.283.8383 or myself anytime.


Because each life counts for the Kingdom,  Thanks for loving our students!

 As a Student Pastor/Director/Leader since I was 22 years old, DYM and the resources they put out have been a great resource to me. I’ve had the opportunity to meet with and have some great conversations with some of the community of DYM.. and they not only produce great content but they genuinely love the community of youth workers.  I’m excited for THIS event (https://downloadyouthministry.brushfire.com/events/451546 ) because I believe that we can always learn; that we should never stop seeking new information, new ideas and learning from others.  On September 21, we’ll be hearing from 8 of the leading voices in Youth Ministry; Doug Fields, Heather Flies, Mark Oestreicher, Karl Romeus, Katie Edwards, Josh Griffin, Chap Clark, and Kara Powell.  We’ll be learning about the Adolescent Brain, how to work (and help parents) and what the heart of a volunteer looks like (.. and it’s not just red and pumps blood..)

I want to personally invite you and your team to come and be a part of this.. (you can register at https://downloadyouthministry.brushfire.com/events/451546). And if you register before April 21, you get the EARLY BIRD price of only $99.
