St. John’s Calls a New Director of Youth Ministries

We are happy to announce the hiring of Chad Reis as Director of Youth Ministries. Chad is originally from Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania (80 miles north of Philadelphia and 120 miles west of New York City). He graduated from Philadelphia University with a B.S. in Pre-Medical Studies, and is a recent Master of Divinity graduate of Sewanee, School of Theology.
Chad is out-going, enthusiastic, and able to relate well to both youth and adults. He likes to ride motorcycles, play rugby and power-lift (he can bench press 350lbs!) He is really looking forward to moving to Columbia, and becoming a part of the staff at St. John’s. His first day will be Monday, October 1st. Please keep him in your prayers!

“24” Fall Retreat- last week to sign up!

“24” Fall Retreat
“Power Up Your Prayer Life”
September 29-30 at Camp Gravatt
For 9-12 grade youth

Designed by youth for youth, this year’s “24” will focus on the who, what, when, where, why, and how of your prayer life. By asking these questions, you will establish connections between your prayer life, your spirituality and your faith. You will be equipped with the tools you need to deepen your prayer life, and help you to develop habits to continue living out prayer, scripture, and the apostles’ teachings in your daily life.
The $50 per person fee includes dinner Saturday through lunch on Sunday,
overnight accommodations in cabins or platform tents, event materials, and
t-shirt. Youth and chaperones must submit completed registration form with
payment to EDUSC by September 9th. Registration forms are available for your convenience at EDUSC.org/youth.
