Dear R3 Parents,
Ernesto Espinosa has been the Youth Director at RCC for the past 5 years. Ernesto’s passion for the Word of God and his walk with the Lord has been an inspiring example to each of the young people that he has served at RCC and the congregation at large. We love Ernesto and we appreciate all that he has done to serve the Youth of R3. We have been so pleased with his leadership over these last years and we are excited about his future here at RCC!
Ernesto has recently felt a ministry shift approaching in his life and has decided that his time serving in Youth Ministry has come to a close. Ernesto and his family will continue to be an active part of the RCC church family. But, at this time, he will be praying and seeking the Lord along with RCC Leadership for his next assignment here at Restoration Christian Church.
We are so pleased to announce that we have a transition strategy for the ministry and wanted the families of the youth ministry to be well informed. Moving forward R3 will receive a major update to the ministry, which will include service structure, logo, and leadership. R3 will move from a Youth Director model of leadership to a Team Approach to leadership, under the supervision of our Family Ministry Pastor, Pastor Pat. We are so excited about the “Dream Team” that has been assembled to help lead the Youth Ministry and we can’t wait to introduce them all to you!
Parents, Youth Ministry is a very important ministry and we take the health and future of the Youth Ministry we provide at RCC very seriously. We ask at this time that you would make a commitment to your student and their connection and involvement with the R3 Youth program here at RCC. We wanted to include a link to a very important article about Youth Ministry and our need as parents to ensure that our teens participate. Please take time to read this insightful article titled, “5 reasons to keep your teen involved in youth ministry.” https://gregstier.dare2share.org/a-letter-to-parents-about-keeping-your-teenagers-going-to-youth-group-in-spite-of- their-busyness
