Last week I had the chance to do something I’ll never forget.
Each year, our church honors our high school graduates with “Senior Sunday.” The young men in each year’s graduating class help lead our Sunday morning worship service. This year, our youth ministry team asked me if I would be interested in co-preaching the morning message with Joshua — and I was thrilled. We worked on a message for my current series on the book of Exodus entitled Out of Darkness. Joshua developed all of his own material and delivered it with confidence, grace, and passion. It was a joy to work on this with him, but even more joyful to sit back and watch him share his heart with our church family. He developed ALL of his own content, too; I just helped with a few edits. In our 25-minute message, I’m guessing he spoke for 17-18 minutes or so. I didn’t even have to do much of the heavy lifting!
In this season of special moments, this is one I will cherish for a long time. You can watch the message below.
