Yesterday was the last Followers at Hayward Wesleyan Church of the school year and my last Followers.
What a fun afternoon!
We put our hand-prints on the wall, ate amazing food, played games, laughed, celebrated, and just had a good time.
It was bittersweet.
- Sweet because I’m happy at what Followers has done in the lives and hearts of students over the years
- Bitter because I’m sad to be stepping away from spiritual and relational leadership with the students
I have LOVED both teaching and modeling the love of Jesus and communicating the heart of the Father with hundreds of students over the last 16 years. I constantly hear from former students (some who are still involved in the church and even those who aren’t) how impactful Followers was when they were kids in elementary school. I also hear from parents how appreciative they are for Followers and its influence on their kids’ lives.
I am so thankful to have been a part of this incredible ministry for my time at Hayward Wesleyan.
Followers has indeed left its mark on the lives of many!
