Youth work has been a very strong feature of my professional development from my teenage years. Even back then I was president of the youth fellowship of my local church. During my Seminary training (1998 – 2002) I was actively involved in mentoring students at a nearby high school. Upon graduation I served as Assistant Pastor of Grace Missionary Church with specific responsibility for the youth department. This was executed using both the arts and sports. Several community outreach events were held aimed at empowering youths and harnessing their cultural talents.
