My jaw dropped. I just heard that Justin was a volunteer youth leader….a VOLUNTEER!!? Having stalked Justin significantly on Facebook, I just assumed that he was a paid youth pastor. His commitment to his students, their families, and their church is so obvious. I don’t know many paid staff people who approach their ministry with as much passion and integrity as Justin. And I’ll be honest – more than once I’ve though ‘maybe I’ll just do this as a volunteer and there will be a little more appreciation and a lot less headache.’ FALSE!! Justin wades into the thick of ministry just like the rest of us – he just has to do it after he completes his full-time job. And he gets no more appreciation and less headache – AND HE STAYS IN!!! I continue to be astonished by his commitment as a volunteer to fully meeting the ministry needs of his community.
