One of the youth pastors in our state sat in the parking lot of every school in his community a couple of years ago asking God to lead him to the right school. He thought for sure God would lead him to a certain school in which he knew students there from his church. However, God had other plans.

God led him to reach out to Briggs Middle School. He still questioned God but decided to be obedient anyway. He started to reach out and help find solutions to the issues on the school campus.

Donny Waite, the Youth and Kids Pastor at New Life church in Springfield, has been faithful in meeting the needs of this school. Just last year, the school contacted Donny about a student who was sleeping on the floor and in need of a bed. In no time, Donny was standing in the school office asking the Principal where to drop off the new bed and mattress. It’s little acts like this that make a HUGE impact in students’ lives. All this because Donny captured the heart of Youth Alive and the resources that are provided. One of these incredible resources is Our Schools Matter.

Our Schools Matter is a FREE resource provided by Youth Alive. It helps walk the church into the most strategic mission field in your community – the schools. Can you imagine being the main resource to your local campus?! Schools are the largest gathering of unsaved people in your community. Imagine if we could unite the school with the church, which is the largest gathering of volunteers in the community! God wants to do something amazing this school year, and it starts with Youth Alive and downloading your free OUR SCHOOLS MATTER resource.
