Thanks to Pastor Matt Reeve for sending me this! Put a smile on my face. His church, Westwood Community Church in St. Cloud (MN), will be focusing on Grow Down in their youth ministry programs this Fall. I was encouraged to be with their lead team a few weeks ago for some training and also with them for their graduation ceremony last May. Great team of leaders and great things happening among students.
