Michael Harris was saved in CBSM as a 7th grader, baptized and called into the pastoral ministry as an 8th grader. It has been incredible to watch Michael grow in the grace and gospel of Jesus over the last 5 years. Michael’s knowledge, faith, worship, and life has obviously deepened as he’s matured. Michael preached for our KTL month last year, and this is just an incredible sermon from the book of 3 John that concludes Michael’s senior year so well. I’m so thankful to have been his youth pastor, and I know God will use him greatly in ministry!

I hope I will never forget it. Back in the spring of 2008, I had preached Exodus 2 – 4 on the call to be a leader like Jesus. Instead of having our second worship set at the end of our service, we just spent time in prayer. The last student praying in the room was a 7th grader. I walked up to him and asked how I could pray for him. He said he felt a burden and a call to be a pastor. That 7th grader was Michael Harris. Now 4 years later, Michael preaches his first sermon to CBSM. If you’ve ever heard Michael pray, you know that he gets it and he’s deep. You will absolutely love the depth, humor, and application of this sermon. Michael did an outstanding job of communicating God’s Word to CBSM and point them to Jesus!

KTL is our team of 11 guy students in our ministry who either believe they are called to the ministry and desire training, or they are not sure if God has called them to ministry but they desire to be trained in the meantime.  Out of the 11 guys, we had 4 (2 seniors and 2 juniors) who had the opportunity to preach through Judges in April for the entire student ministry.  The other 7 are getting their opportunity to preach to the KTL Team over the month of May.

The students I’m highlighting this week who got to preach this last Sunday evening for our KTL Team was David Munoz (freshman) and Michael Harris (8th grader). Continue reading
