It is a pleasure to introduce Jason Sturgis, son of Tracy and Jonathan, sister of Jessica Brewer, as PFC Summer Intern for Children’s Ministries.
Jason graduated from PHS in 2014, and has attended Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho for the last two years. He will begin his Junior year in the Fall majoring in Elementary Education. Visit Jason’s NNU website which gives insight into and a preview of his talents, abilities, and passions.
Multi-talented in both music and dance, Jason starred in his college production this Spring, of Guys and Dolls.
Summer Children’s Church Curriculum
Although he will still be helping his aunt and uncles with property management, Jason will be applying his gifts and talents by organizing Sunday morning Children’s Church at PFC. The curriculum that has been selected is the book Journey with Jesus.
This Gospel Light curriculum believes the best way to reach kids for Jesus is by teaching about God and His Word through hands-on activities that engage a child’s intense curiosity, openness to learning new things and desire to love and be loved by Jesus.
Another priority for Jason is to focus on inspiring and recruiting helpers and teachers to support the Children’s Ministry Program. To that goal, Jason will be applying some of his creative skills by producing videos that will provide teacher training, and promote recruiting.
Jason says, “It is my desire and goal in life to glorify God with the talents and abilities that he has granted me and help others discover their strengths so they can go on to help others do that same.”
We are excited at how well Jason’s vision coincides with the church’s vision for Children’s Ministries. He states: “I want the children of our church to learn about Jesus and the love he has for them. I would also like them to understand the meaning of prayer and how to pray. I want them to go away from Sunday school exited to tell their parents about what they learned. “
Memory Work and Challenges
Regarding memory verses, Jason says, “There will always be a memory verse but there will also be a weekly challenge, something the kids look for, research, find, and/or bring to class the next Sunday.”
When Jason isn’t working for his uncle serving as our summer intern, or counseling kids at Quaker Ridge Camp in Woodland Park, you might find him hanging out with girlfriend Ashley.
