While Living Water Ministries strives to help form faith in the lives of young people, the truth is the faith of young people forms our faith all the more!  Each summer, campers offer their humbling insights into who God is and what God is up to in the world.  It isn’t the curriculum we purchase, the worship services we write, or the campfires we plan where God is made most known.  God is revealed most powerfully as campers simply share their hearts and minds, ask questions, and tell their faith stories.

“The Voice of Leadership” is an attempt to give you a glimpse of the wisdom young people possess about faith, and how to live as God’s people in today’s world.  Once a month we will be bringing you a video of young person reading the Gospel lesson from the lectionary for the upcoming Sunday and offering their brief thoughts about the text.  These videos will be no more than 5 minutes in length.  We encourage you to add these into your faith practices, or to incorporate them into your on-line worship services.
