Wrapping Up Our Focus on Student Ministries This Month

Wrapping Up our Focus on Student Ministries

Helping Students Follow Jesus Further

Bryce Roskens
Youth Pastor, Steamboat Rock Baptist Church
Steamboat Rock, Iowa

I have had the privilege of working with students from our church and surrounding communities for over fourteen years now. I believe that longevity in youth ministry is a real thing with real value, but it’s not accomplished in an isolation chamber. Many resources and relationships have helped and continue to help us reach the next generation in and around Steamboat Rock, Iowa.

  • Team Effort
  • Constantly Learning

Church Planter of the Week

Rommel Ticas, Casa de Luz – Stockton, Stockton, California. Rommel and his family have been serving in the Stockton area for more than fifteen years. Last June, Casa de Luz ­– Stockton launched, in partnership with Casa de Luz in Sacramento, California, and Quail Lakes Baptist Church in Stockton. Pastor Rommel’s dream is that everyone in the church know and focus on Jesus. He currently works another job during the workweek, which leaves him with not as much time as he would like for ministry. Pray for his schedule, as well as for the continued spiritual growth of those who call Casa de Luz – Stockton home. Contact Pastor Rommel at rommelticas@gmail.com to find out more about the church, and you can also visit www.casadeluz.net/stockton or www.facebook.com/casadeluzstockton.
