'Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine' (I Tim. 5:17). Our purpose for this post is to publicly recognize the TRGYC nucleus, those who have been with us since day one, and whom we work together hand-in-hand with almost daily. While they may not chronologically qualify as elders, their tenure, growth and leadership, both in their personal relationship with God and in our local youth ministry IS most definitely worthy of double-honor. We are not wise when we compare ourselves among ourselves, but for a moment we will happily risk foolishness and proudly suggest that we have been privileged to work with one of the greatest youth ministry teams ever. There's not enough room to detail all they exactly do - and if you've ever been involved in youth ministry then you understand. Because of their leadership and labor in the doctrine and the Word, our young people have a better chance of 'becoming' and making it to Heaven. We love you all!
