"People are not projects"

Fuller Youth Institute | Nov 1, 2018

What happens when an adult chooses to see time spent with a young person as a “divine appointment”?

When we offer conversation instead of a lecture?

When a leader approaches a small group as if they are people, not projects?

Jazzy didn’t have a lot of experience with teenagers, but she wanted to help her church create a warm environment for young people. When she offered to lead a small group, a divine appointment took place.

She found that you don’t have to be experienced, highly trained, or trendy to show empathy for students. You just have to be willing.

Hearing Jazzy and Natalie share their story fills us with warmth. We hope it inspires you too.
