Train a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. — Proverbs 22:6
|“I love fishing. I love it even more when kids catch fish.”|
– Barry "Bass Master" Whitfield / Ministry 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 "Sting Ray" Watkins
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 "Slayer" Provins
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.
|"I love the look on a child’s face when he or she catches a fish! Teaching them how to fish is such a blessing. God provides the fish, and we give them right back to Him."|
– Pasquale "Big Guns Caster" Brunetto
Being a third-generation fisherman, it has always been a passion in my life. Growing up, I lived 4 blocks from the Embarcadero. My dad was always out fishing, and I didn’t have anyone to teach me how to fish. It would have been so cool to have had 22:6 Youth Fishing to teach me how to fish and learn about Jesus.
And He said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” — Matthew 4:19
|"It's fun serving with friends and helps me feel connected."|
– Nikki Gokey
I enjoy being outside in the sun and on the beautiful beaches with the kids and other volunteers. My son feels comfortable with everyone and likes playing with other kids there. I like the Bible lesson time to help remind us of all the blessings we have, even in just that one fishing day
This ministry operates out of Point Loma and is open to everyone
