Taking Work with Youth to New Levels
After three years of teaching high school Chris Miller found himself less interested in the material and more interested in the students themselves. With a BS in Secondary Education & Theater from Southwest Baptist University, he felt a call to take his work with youth to a new level.
“My greatest passion has been my students at school and the youth at my church,” he says. Budget cutbacks that reduced his hours at school, increased involvement with his church's youth program, and much reflection and prayer led Chris to the create program. He hopes to find a full time position as a youth pastor.
