Freedom Friday with West Michigan Youth for Christ

Perry and Shawna welcome 3 guys from West Michigan Youth for Christ to share how Jesus is changing the lives of middle and high schoolers in West Michigan.  First, Steven Timlick, Campus Life Director in Holland shares his story of redemption:  Jesus finding him in high school, a failed marriage, finding and marrying the love of his life after that loss and then being raised up by Jesus to be right in the center of what Jesus is doing to bring marginalized young people to himself in West Michigan.  Then Z, a volunteer with Campus Life in Holland shares his story of being rescued by Jesus, the defining point being when he was lying face down as bullets ripped through his living room window.  Z then shares the special moment at Youth For Christ camp when he first said “yes” to Jesus at the top of his lungs.  He didn’t even know he was going to a Christian camp.  Someone had told him it was basketball camp.  Ha ha!  Then Steven is back to share how as Campus Life Director he met Z in high school and began to do life with him and help him grow in his faith.  Finally, Dan Kregel, Executive Director of Youth For Christ in West Michigan shares the story of Pedro who was in a juvenile detention center in West MI when he met a Ray a Youth For Christ mentor who led him to faith.  Eventually Pedro pushed Ray away when he got out but then realized how much he loved Ray.  He reconnected with Ray in a miraculous way that you just have to hear.  Now Pedro is flourishing in his walk with Jesus as Andy walks alongside him.  Listen to these best of moments!
