Today I officially have a junior in high school and a jr higher. I can’t believe how fast my kids are growing! I also noticed on Facebook that this group of boys that I counseled at Forest Home camp are all now Freshmen in high school. They were entering the 5th grade when I was their leader at that time! This was such an amazing time in my life and I have felt this urge to work with students again. It’s such a blessing! I run into kids I have discipled here and there and it amazes me how they don’t forget their leaders. I loved these boys and I’m so thankful God gave me the opportunity to invest in them. The boy on the right was pretty special to me as he really struggling with life at that point. I am thankful I got to be his small group leader for two years and I’m proud of him and all the other boys who are growing to be men.

Servant Leadership Experience

Hume Camp San Diego

Dear friends and family,

My name is Jake, and I attend a high school group called Merge at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship. The high school group and I were recently informed about a mission trip to Chicago, IL to serve and care for the needy and homeless. This will take place from July 8th through the 14th. This will be an outstanding experience for us to learn about the qualities of being a servant leader and to help others in need. After the week of firsthand experience, we will take what we will learn and apply to ourselves and others to our own communities at home.

We will be teaming up with Servant Leadership Experience – which is a ministry of Lead222. Lead222 is an organization devoted to the mentoring, training, and development of Christian leaders and students. They value the concept of servant leadership and provide that experience to assist youth ministries who want to help serve the physically, financially and emotionally challenged of our world as they build into their ministry students and the leadership values that will serve them for life.

What we will do for others in Chicago are work projects for the needy. These work projects will serve churches and organizations in a lasting way, while giving us a hands-on opportunity to develop servant leadership skills. We also will be given a clear understanding of the importance of flexibility and teamwork as we unite together to accomplish a single task.

I would first like to ask if you would pray for me and my team as we spend this week in Chicago.  Secondly, I need to raise $1000 to go on this trip.  It would be greatly appreciated if you would be a part of this journey and be willing to donate to my cause. If you feel led, you can write a check to Cornerstone Christian Fellowship with my first and last name and Chicago (Merge) in the memo. Thank you for your support and prayers.

God Bless,  Jake Timmons

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves.  Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interest of others.  Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.  – Philippians 2:3-5
