Kempsford sports club recently held its first fully young- leader-led sports session.
The group attracts between 8 and 12 people along each week and the over 13s are learning leadership skills. They have been exploring encouragement, forgiveness and servant leadership.
Ben White, PSALMS inter, said, “Some of the young leaders really stepped up during this time, showing some excellent leadership skills. Taking control of the situation, getting everyone involved and making sure everyone felt valued. It’s fantastic to see the growth in confidence over the last few months when it comes to the leadership group and taking ownership over certain parts of the sessions. What was truly amazing to see was the respect the younger members of the group had for the young leaders leading.
“Discipleship is a really important part of the Kempsford sports club in helping them grow as people of sport and in discovering who God is to them at the same time. This term we are discovering the deeper meanings between popular characters in the bible such as Noah and Joseph. This has already seen such a great response and engagement in the two deeper meanings of promise and forgiveness, with a true realisation to how they can do that in their lives.
“We hope for God to continue to impact the young people’s lives in Kempsford and grow them as leaders and spiritually at the same time.”
