  1. Would be awesome to win, could really use this package this year!

  2. Great! I’m curious, do you do college seniors as well? I’ve never heard of a church including them before. I’m about 11 1/2 months into this job, and had a couple college senior parents contact me asking why they hadn’t heard about anything yet. Just curious if this is a common thing and I just missed it when I graduated myself!

    • I did it at a Church once. It’s kind of strange cause you’re not sure who’s gonna show up. I just kind of had a stack of 5 dollar copies of “Upmost For His Highest” ready to go in case anyone came out of the wood work. I prefer to just honor the youth who are graduating from my program and let the adult ministry handle the college students. But it’s not always our choice.

  3. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  4. This would be great. I’ve been wondering what to get my senior high WyldLife leaders. They are a great group of kids and I want them to continue in their walk with Christ.

    I’m a college student and a part time youth minister. I would like the opportunity to get this package for free. When I got my graduation present from my old church, it felt like there was a major disconnect in material. This makes me very interested that people are trying to do something different.

  66. would be delighted to share the blessing to our graduating students.
