|‘As part of our leadership training we’ve set three goals – for our faith, youth work and personal life. I’ve learned what my strengths are, and how to build on them. And I know what I’m aiming at.
‘God’s given me a heart for young people and I want to do all I can to see them thrive. One lad has done The Alpha Course (he’s done it three times!) and he’s developed so much in his faith. I messaged him recently to say how proud I was of him.
‘I’m only a few years older than the young people I work with, but I can see that life’s tougher for them than it was for me. There’s more pressure. That’s why one of my goals is to become a mentor.
I’ve grown so much, with Thrive Teams’ help, and now my focus is helping other people in my community to grow too.’
