Jared Attia has been serving as a children's ministry intern at St John's this year. Here are some of his reflections on the year:
1. What does your week look like as a children’s ministry intern?
My week normally involves organising different aspects of the kids ministries at St John’s such as Kid’s Church on Sundays and our kids clubs, Splatt and Basement. I also teach two scripture classes at Dobroyd Point Public School, which was a new experience for me.
2. What keeps you going in kids ministry?
Kids ministry is especially exciting, not only because kids can bring something new everyday, but often, especially in the scripture class context, you get the opportunity to tell a child the gospel for the first time or teach biblical stories that they have never heard before, which I think is really special.
3. How has God been growing you over this year?
I think I have grown especially in regards to my ability to teach and understand God’s word which in the future will helpful in my individual growth more and more. But also in both general and spiritual maturity, being amongst the staff at CCIW has been a real eye opener for how Christians act and the wisdom they display.
