Since the 6th grade I've spent my Spring Breaks on mission trips with Trietsch youth, and every year people ask me why. They ask why I would give up a week of my time or a chance to go on vacation to go work. Every time, I tell them that there is no other way I would rather...

In her many years of serving with Kids Eat Free, Linda Krause has learned it's more about building relationships than getting work done.
Summer is just around the corner, and everybody loves summer! Sleeping in, time for those activities that you don't have time for during the rest of the year, traveling and so much more.

Unless they belong to me, kids are not really my thing. That is until I attended MAD for Jesus camp last year. I have no idea what led me to volunteer . . . (Oh, I know, I'll blame it on the Holy Spirit).
When I signed up, I was told all I had to do was show up about 9:30 am and lead a group of kids from one activity station to the...

Read about Barbara Doores' faith journey as a youth leader and what led her to host the Trietsch Youth Life Group in her home:
There are so many lessons that I have learned throughout my life. There are opportunities we should grasp. There are challenges we should face. There is undeniably a God we can trust. There is growth for ourselves when we realize it is not about us.
There is growth for ourselves when we get out of our expected comfort. There is a growth in relationships...

Does God guide people together? I will admit that I'm never sure how God works. But in this case, I do think we were guided together.
Our Life group is not large, but we don't need to be. We enjoy hearing about each other's weeks and discussing God in everyday life. One...

David Taylor sees the connection between storms and growth. Read his Life Group story and come this Sunday to join a group.
Growing up in Haltom City I saw a few storms. My Dad got me hooked on watching thunder storms and I've passed it on to my children. I love to sit outside and watch a big old thunderstorm come rolling in. The lightning flashing across the sky, the thunder shacking the windows, it's thrilling and exciting. I like storms. I see God in storms. The power and...
