A phrase we use often at CentriKid is “life-change happens best in the context of a relationship.” We believe that ministry through relationships is vitally important. When you come to CentriKid, our staff will invest in your kids’ lives by showing the love of God through they way they live. Staffers aren’t performers; they are ministers. Meanwhile, we take care of all the details of camp so you can also focus on relationships with your kids.
Recently we’ve featured a few stories about staffers that excel at living out ministry through relationships. Check out this awesome story that Sadie Sasser shared with us:
I worked last summer on CK3 at Millsaps! Recently I was in Memphis visiting my aunt and uncle, and I went to their church. I remembered that the children’s ministry attended CentriKid at Millsaps, and in the back of my mind I was wondering if I would run in to any kids I had met. It just so happened that they were having a baptism service, and one of the girls that I distinctly remember from my Bible study was getting baptized! Even better, her dad is the worship pastor, and he was the one who baptized her!
He talked about how over the past few months, she had been asking questions about Jesus, which reminded me of the impact camp probably had. I went to introduce myself to her parents after the service, and I saw Caroline an gave her a hug. It was the biggest coincidence that I was able to witness her baptism. It was so special!
God used all of this to remind me of how He works. Even when I am removed from the situation or I forget, He is still working in the lives and hearts of every child from camp. He is so faithful, and He doesn’t need me at all, but He chooses to use us for moments just like this- to realize His faithfulness and rejoice in it.
This was also a huge reminder for me to keep praying for the kids that crossed my path last summer. I know that He is at work even when I cannot see it, and I know that His love is big enough to reach them at any time. I hope this has been an encouragement to you as much as it has been for me! I pray that you all know that the work you are putting in to the coming summer is well worth it, and the work you put in to last summer is STILL bearing fruit.
We are looking forward to another awesome summer of ministry through relationships, and we hope to see you there as we explore RESET: God Redeems!
