Hannah Bolger. 25 years old.
Working with Culcheth Methodist Church through Warrington Youth for Christ.
God has developed a passion within me to reach the younger generation. To build up lasting relationships within the church and outside community and, ultimately, to see lives changed by the gospel.
Before starting this role, after studying at Liverpool Hope University, I spent two years working as an outdoor instructor at CMC Adventure, which is a Christian-run outdoor education centre situated within the Snowdonia National Park. While working there, God highlighted in me a desire to go into full time ministry. Since then, I've completed a ministry internship in the Philippines with Metro World Child, followed by working as a kids and family worker for a church in North Wales. During this time God gave me a heart for connecting with the younger people, on the 'outside,' by finding ways of ministering to them relevantly and practically and bridging the gap between them and the church.
I will be employed for 20 hours and 10 of these will be spent working in Culcheth High School. I will also be getting involved in local youth groups and doing detached work, in the area, on Friday nights. Here I am able to walk in the calling that God has placed on my life...to walk alongside young people, to meet them where they're at whilst sharing the love of God with them. I'm so excited to see all that the Lord will do in and around the community of Culcheth!
Please continue to pray for this work and I will provide regular updates.
