PuritSeries1

The 2018 Purity Series is a 4 week gathering aimed to uncover God's provision for our lives in regards to sex, relationships, and holiness. God created something amazing that is meant to be enjoyed in the safe context of marriage. Join us as we discuss God's guardrails, overcoming the struggle, the consequences of doing things the 'world’s’ way, God's plan for true blessing, redemption, how to talk about purity with your student, avoiding the sin cycle and much more. 

Sessions will include large gatherings, parent only sessions, testimonies, and small group discussion times. 

The Purity Series will be led by Pastors Jordy Vickrey (Middle School) and Shawn Brennan (Marriage and Family). Pastor Shawn Brennan brings over 20 years of Pastoral ministry and plenty of experience in counseling young couples dealing with issues of sexual purity. 

Featuring special guest Pam Stenzel. Pam is a world renown speaker known for her emphasis on sexual purity and developing godly character. Pam speaks to over 500,000 students every year about their purity and has spoken at multiple United Nation Summits as well as participated in community initiative meetings at the White House. 

"I believe we have an awesome window of opportunity to discuss purity with the next generation right as they are developing their understanding of it. It is so important that we talk about this and get it right. I know it is uncomfortable but the world is teaching them regardless so we need to give students the tools and truth to navigate their decisions now.  No parent can make the choice of physical, emotional, and spiritual purity for their teenager. It's a choice every person must own and fight for themselves." - Jordy Vickrey

Meet our Junior High Pastor...

My name is Jordy Logan Vickrey I grew up in Washington state before my family relocated to Ohio. I attended Liberty University for youth ministry and grew up in the church. I lost interest in attending youth group or church as a teenager until God called me there and showed me a place where authentic life change was happening. It was there I found my calling and started to develop as a future Pastor.For Bio

My heart is for students to fully experience God and experience the vision of this ministry. Because of my background I have a strong desire and inclination to facilitate an authentic environment.  I believe authentic environments overcome cliques and religious behavior leaving room for real people to encounter God and experience a community that can only exists within Christ’s freedom. I believe there is no teenage or ‘kid’ version of God, therefore we take content seriously and give students opportunities to live out their faith in big ways. 

 

 

 

The vision for our Junior High Ministry here at Grace is this:

Our vision is to lead students to:

  •      LOVE - For students to discover God’s love through word, worship, and community.

  •      SERVE - For students to experience fullness in God by sharing his love with others and serving the kingdom.

  •      GROW - To grow in relation with God and others. To develop godly disciples and leaders.

  •     DEVELOP lifelong memories and relationships
