  • When I first started preaching,

  • ministry has change the game for
  • 00:25:37.098 --> 00:25:38.099
  • - I was in desperation for God
  • 00:25:40.068 --> 00:25:41.970
  • to flood my life and take over.
  • 00:25:41.970 --> 00:25:42.971
  • I came across a message by
  • 00:25:42.971 --> 00:25:44.406
  • Pastor Steven on YouTube and it
  • 00:25:44.406 --> 00:25:45.974
  • immediately spoke to me and
  • 00:25:45.974 --> 00:25:47.008
  • began changing my
  • 00:25:47.008 --> 00:25:47.809
  • way of thinking.
  • 00:25:47.809 --> 00:25:48.810
  • I became more connected with
  • 00:25:48.810 --> 00:25:50.145
  • Elevation, and became connected
  • 00:25:50.145 --> 00:25:51.780
  • to an incredible community of
  • 00:25:51.780 --> 00:25:52.714
  • - The end of my senior year
  • 00:25:54.416 --> 00:25:55.250
  • in high school was a very
  • 00:25:55.250 --> 00:25:56.551
  • confusing time for me.
  • 00:25:56.551 --> 00:25:57.819
  • One day a friend sent me a link
  • 00:25:57.819 --> 00:25:59.020
  • to a sermon, and hearing that
  • 00:25:59.020 --> 00:26:00.589
  • message set my faith on
  • 00:26:00.589 --> 00:26:01.756
  • a new trajectory.
  • 00:26:01.756 --> 00:26:02.991
  • I joined an online group.
  • 00:26:02.991 --> 00:26:04.392
  • My group leader Patrick not only
  • 00:26:04.392 --> 00:26:06.127
  • cares for a group when we meet,
  • 00:26:06.127 --> 00:26:07.028
  • he's also a mentor and friend
  • 00:26:07.028 --> 00:26:08.063
  • - God radically changed my life
  • 00:26:09.798 --> 00:26:11.132
  • just over four years ago.
  • 00:26:11.132 --> 00:26:12.400
  • Elevation was introduced to me
  • 00:26:12.400 --> 00:26:13.335
  • at a time in my life when
  • 00:26:13.335 --> 00:26:14.836
  • I felt disconnected.
  • 00:26:14.836 --> 00:26:15.804
  • I started in an online group,
  • 00:26:15.804 --> 00:26:16.838
  • and since then, I've had an
  • 00:26:16.838 --> 00:26:17.772
  • opportunity to meet people from
  • 00:26:17.772 --> 00:26:20.041
  • all different walks of life,
  • 00:26:20.041 --> 00:26:20.775
  • - As a kid, I didn't have much
  • 00:26:22.277 --> 00:26:23.545
  • interest in the church, but my
  • 00:26:23.545 --> 00:26:25.146
  • mom refused to give up on me,
  • 00:26:25.146 --> 00:26:25.847
  • and would send me
  • 00:26:25.847 --> 00:26:26.748
  • sermons to watch.
  • 00:26:26.748 --> 00:26:27.916
  • So, I eventually gave in and
  • 00:26:27.916 --> 00:26:29.184
  • watched one of Pastor Steven's
  • 00:26:29.184 --> 00:26:30.185
  • messages on YouTube.
  • 00:26:30.185 --> 00:26:31.419
  • It changed my perspective and
  • 00:26:31.419 --> 00:26:32.621
  • outlook on what a relationship
  • 00:26:32.621 --> 00:26:33.622
  • with God could
  • 00:26:33.622 --> 00:26:34.556
  • actually look like.
  • 00:26:34.556 --> 00:26:35.757
  • I became an online Youth Leader
  • 00:26:35.757 --> 00:26:37.125
  • that I wish I would have had
  • 00:26:37.125 --> 00:26:38.093
  • in my youth.
  • 00:26:38.093 --> 00:26:39.561
  • So, this summer at Youth X, two
  • 00:26:39.561 --> 00:26:41.363
  • of the girls in my group
  • 00:26:41.363 --> 00:26:42.497
