|“I love fishing. I love it even more when kids catch fish.”|
– Barry Whitfield, Volunteer Leader
Teaching kids to take part in an adventure rather than downloading one. Helping them discover a passion they never knew they had. Guiding their curiosities towards setting goals and accomplishing them. Exposing young hearts and minds to a personal relationship with God. Sharing gifts once given to me with others gives me joy. How cool is that? Jesus!
|“Fishing is just plain fun. Fishing with kids, more fun.”|
– Ralph Watkins, Volunteer Mentor Extraordinaire
I meet kids who have never had the experience of holding a wiggling pole with a mysterious creature on the line. What will they discover when the surface of the water breaks? My role as a volunteer is to help them learn how to fish. The joy a child experiences when catching a fish is contagious and keeps me coming back to serve in this ministry.
|"GOT FISH? Fishing is my sanctuary. Teaching kids how to fish is a blessing."|
– Michael Provins, Volunteer
Teaching kids how to fish and seeing the expressions on the kids faces, when first time catching a fish, is PRICELESS. We don't just teach fishing. The ministry teaches the word of God. That's why I'm blessed and honored to be part of the fishing ministry.
Fish on! I got to go... God bless young fishermen and young fishing ladies.
