30: The Boys Discuss Their Faith Walk

Ryan Pfendler and Jill Devine invited the next generation to sit down and chat about the faith of the next generation. In this week’s episode, two male high schoolers (Gus and Trevor) sat down with Ryan and Justin Shiroma. You may remember Justin from two previous episodes:

Episode 7: What Is My Role As A Christian?

BONUS (7b): Going Deeper With Justin Shiroma

Gus attends a private high school and Trevor attends a public high school. They opened up to Ryan and Justin about their faith walk, what they want from adult ministry leaders, and what they want their parents to know and understand about them.

Ryan is the Director of Student & Young Adult Ministry at Messiah St. Charles. Ryan’s ministry believes that following Jesus is the way young people grow into the best version of themselves. He wants every teenager to belong to a community of faith where they can learn who Jesus is, and discover the purpose He has for them now and as they grow.

*Hearing the call from God

*Fear of being vulnerable

*Being a Christian may not be “cool”

*The importance of the small group setting

*Tackling topics specific to teenagers

*The waiting game

*Empty promises
