At Radiant I was responsible to launch and lead the youth ministry at the church. I lead, recruited and empowered youth leaders to plan and execute curriculum and strategies to create a healthy youth culture that integrated students into the mission and vision of church as a whole. I orchestrated a number of youth events such as monthly youth worship night which focused on youth creativity, youth pool parties, Christmas parties, and beach days. I preached monthly at the youth worship night and weekly at youth house gatherings.
I also helped the staff, plan and execute church wide events. I assisted pastors as they crafted their sermons which often took the shape of offering researched information, examples of possible illustrations, and critical feedback on various aspects of the sermon.
While at Radiant I embarked on a number of missions trips to Sri Lanka and India where I preached and taught in various settings including villages, churches, pastor’s conferences, and even Radiant’s Bible school.

I worked with pastors to help stream line their sermons, and I worked with the tech team to ensure that each transition during services occurred as seamless as possible.
