Creative Arts Team

Creative Arts Team

The Creative Arts team is a part of YouthQuest that contains guys and girls who are exceptionally gifted in drama, comedy and media arts and are devoted to serving the Lord with their talents. The team uses comedy as an icebreaker for getting to know students as well as and more importantly a way to open a door for the Gospel. The team also uses their ability on stage to present biblical truths to students, such as God’s love.

Why YQ? I believe that God called me to YouthQuest by having multiple people encouraging me to audition. I had no idea that this is what I wanted to do, but I felt God was leading me into this direction. To my surprise, I made the team! I have a huge heart for youth, and I am excited to travel and share the gospel with the youth where it is desperately needed!

Why YQ? All I want to do is talk about Jesus. Getting to teach students about God’s vast one-of-a-kind of love and all that He is? Yeah, that is absolutely incredible! I am so beyond thankful that God has given me this unique opportunity to be a vessel for Him on this ministry team. And through everything that I do- whether it be hanging out with the students, something as simple as taking pictures, or creating art, it is all purely for His glory. …That brings me the greatest joy because I know it brings Him an even greater joy. All I want to do is love my sweet Jesus with all that I am.

Why YQ? After having spent four years studying theatre throughout my high school career I felt The Lord calling me to use my talents to glorify Him and serve on YouthQuest. It is an amazing ministry that allows me to serve The Lord in the ways that I love by pouring into the lives of students and continue acting.

Why YQ? I have known since I was in sixth grade, when YouthQuest began coming to my church, that I wanted to serve on the team. Now with God's great provision and timing, I have been given the opportunity to be on a team that serves the local church and pours God's love into every single student. There's nothing I love more than seeing a student begin to understand God's love for them, and with YouthQuest I'm given that opportunity on the weekends that we travel. My heart has been with this ministry for so many years now, and I am so honored to be on the team.

Why YQ? I am so very excited to be working with YouthQuest this year! This ministry is an incredible way to share as well as show the Gospel and the deep love of Christ to students of all ages. My hope is that when my team interacts with students they will be able to see Jesus' example through us. I cannot wait to see how God uses the team in the furthering of His kingdom!
