Last week, a few of St. Andrew’s members were able to represent St. Andrew’s at another Teen Challenge graduation ceremony. We gathered together to celebrate four men: Martin, Matthew, Eric, and David. One was completing the initial induction at the Santa Ana facilities, and the other three were finishing up their internships there.
During the service, Pastor Fernando Tamara shared a passionate and encouraging message. Pastor Tamara currently serves as the Director of The Jesse Miranda Center for Hispanic Leadership. His message focused on Acts 14, charging the men to remain faithful to God even in the difficult periods that may come after graduation. During these times, serving the Lord may seem like a struggle; but God sees the good things that are to come – and will reward this faithfulness! Our lives should be a living example of what the power of God can do.
Afterwards, the men shared their testimonies, which were authentic and inspiring as always. The Serve Department would love for you to join us at the next Teen Challenge Graduation Ceremony on Thursday, November 17 to encourage and celebrate the transformation for Christ in their lives.
