You Never Know What You’ll Get When You Say, “I Surrender”
I remember like it was yesterday. I knelt down beside my bed in Buena Vista, Colorado, in October 1984, and I said, “Lord, I surrender. If you will get me out of this mess I am in, I will do whatever You wish.” Wow! I never knew at the time what that meant. I was perfectly happy living in the mountains of Colorado. However, the Lord had a better plan. Soon after I surrendered my life to the Lord, it was as if I started “The Great Adventure.” My life was completely different. I quickly felt the tug on my heart to surrender to ministry. So, in January 1989, I began my seminary training. Three months later, I was called to the position of children’s pastor at a church near the seminary. I have been working with children ever since.
Celebrating 20 Years of Ministry-L.I.T. Ministries Newsletter
Celebrating 20 Amazing Years!
It is hard to believe, but L.I.T. started 20 years ago at Wedgwood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas. It has been an incredible journey. When I began that summer, I had envisioned a leadership ministry for preteens, and we called it L.I.T. (Leaders In Training). We saw God do great work that first summer as we moved in this direction. Little did I know that L.I.T. would begin to expand into other churches by 2006. Our mission trips also began to include other churches. This summer, we will take our 31st and 32nd mission trips. Doors have opened worldwide to leaders on how to reach and disciple children.
For the next 12 months, we will highlight some exciting stories along the way. Thank you for being a part of this fantastic journey.

Children Don't Need Our Permission to Speak for Christ
Chaylee stood before about 50 children and parents at the “See You At The Pole Rally” at Peaster Elementary School. She shared a clear presentation of the Gospel. Chaylee is part of the teaching team at Willow Park Baptist Church. She takes part in weekly training and regularly teaches at the church. She plans on starting a Bible study at her school this October. Jennifer Smith and Cari Hill are her teachers/equippers at the church. With children who are trained and released at church, we regularly see them become emboldened with the Gospel in the world.
L.I.T. September '21 Newsletter: "We Have Never Heard Teaching Like This Before"
“The pastors are very glad to receive wonderful teaching from you. All of them said that this was our first time to hear such teaching. Many agreed with you that we ignore the children in the ministry in our churches. Thank you for opening their eyes to see how valuable they are and how useful they can be. We can reach them with the Gospel, make disciples, and equip them to do the same in the churches.”
Thirty pastors took part in the training event. We are needing to print training materials for future training events. The cost is $5.00/handbook. We need to raise $1,000 to cover this cost.
