It is with great excitement I announce the hiring of Kylie Bradley as our new YoungLives Intern! Kylie has a huge heart for ministry and sharing the Gospel with others. She spent 6 months being trained up as a missionary with YWAM in Hawaii and Ghana last year and she continues to live life as a mission field here in Orange County.
Kylie has spent the last 2 years helping in childcare at YoungLives and being available to jump in wherever she has been needed. This summer she joined us as a leader at camp and had a tremendous impact on the teen moms from North Orange County. If you missed her blog post about her camp experience you can read it here. I have seen her consistently volunteer at Rockhabor Church services and build meaningful relationships with families in the community. I am not only excited about working with her but also about seeing the impact she will have on the ministry, our volunteers, and the teen moms and dads. Please pray for Kylie as she transitions into this new position and join me in welcoming her!
I am thankful for evidence of God’s hand in this ministry and our lives as He made it possible for us to hire Kylie (and for her to accept the position) at the right time. As we say goodbye to Nicole Maiocco, who has spent the last 10 months working with us to build systems that will serve the ministry for years to come, we are excited to send her off to a place that will be incredibly blessed by her passion and gifting. We are grateful to our ministry partner ReGenesis for the gift of hiring Nicole to work with us and we are excited to see how she is used in her new position at her sons’ school, Calvary Christian School in Santa Ana.
Please join me in praying for this new ministry year as we prepare for our Fall Kick-Off training next week and anticipate the teen moms and dads that we will be meeting in the weeks to come.
