Y1: Be the Ball

Small group workshop presenter

Shawn Herkstroeter


Facing the challenges and difficulties of teen life shouldn’t get you down! Move from surviving teen life to thriving by being the BALL! All participants will receive a beloved BOUNCY BALL as we discuss how it models spiritual, emotional, and physical resilience. In addition, participants will create a personal resilience plan that will help them dominate each day as we honor God with intentional living.
