Real Stories from SYMC #27

Ben Halsch.

Ben is the blanket to my Linus!  I don’t know what it is about Benny, but he brings a quality of ‘safe’ to every encounter.  He always picks just the right time to call or text with an encouragement.  When I walk into a planning meeting and see him there, I know all the ‘behind the scenes’ stuff is done.  When he’s my roommate, I sleep well…because he’s not going to use me as the butt of his jokes (even though I most assuredly keep him awake with me praying….um, I mean…snoring).  If I ever called him and said “Ben, I need you in Corpus Christi right now”, I know he would come.  (And don’t think I haven’t considered it a time or two.)

You need to know Ben!  you can do that by coming to SYMC this year….and by finding him on Facebook or Twitter.

I've been in student ministry nearly 30 years…which generally just confirms how much I still don't know. Some days I'm the pizza-eating, over-responding, teaching-on-the-fly, desperate-for-volunteers, frustrated-with-co-workers youth leader that we all are. And sometimes…I knock it out of the park. I'm everywhere on social media that you are!
