Where would we be without the TRLP Program in 2020-2021? I remember when Pastor Terrence (my hubby) and I first experienced the 52 acre Campus of Tahoe Forest Church. We walked around the property with eyes wide open knowing that God had BIG plans for the future of the Church. The vision of raising up the next generation of leaders was planted in our minds on that very first tour. Our hearts immediately thought of all the Christian young adults that would call Tahoe home for an immersive period of time to learn, grow, create, glean, inspire, stretch, encounter, and lead.
When the Tahoe Resident Leadership Program became a reality during the COVID pandemic of 2020 we were so blessed to watch our TRLP residents thrive in all areas of the church. As Kid’s Director, I watched the leaders teach, play, disciple and joyfully entertain our preschool through 5th grade students. So many of my core leader volunteers in Kid’s Ministry had to take a step back from serving to take care of teaching their own children, adapt to work-from-home life, and manage all the stresses of COVID. I was left praying to God asking, “How are we as a church going to get through this?”. It was the LORD’S providential plan to provide TRLP leaders to “Step-in and Step-up” to lead Kid’s Church and provide so much support to our families. God always amazes me when he plants seeds of vision in our minds and allows us to grow that seed into reality. The TRLP program is real life hands on ministry! It blessings both the participate and the church body. I am so grateful to our group of leaders and all they do for Kid’s Church and the church as a whole.
