JoelhayworthL.I.T. (Leaders in Training) taught me at a young age the value of a personal, daily quiet time with the Lord. During my years in LIT, I began to grow dramatically in my belief in God and gain a newfound understanding of how God speaks to His followers, through His Word. Serving in my church (First Baptist Church, Ozark) has allowed me to see the body of Christ at work in a number of different facets. Serving, and serving in many different avenues, has given me a greater appreciation of leaders within my own church as well as a deeper faith on a personal level. Being stretched in these different locations of service has given me the opportunity to grow both in my faith from an evangelistic standpoint as well as a theological one.

Once the importance of service is engrained in the fiber of your being, it is nearly impossible to get out. Whenever I joined the student ministry at my church it was natural to serve in whatever capacity was available. Because I was given the opportunity to serve through L.I.T. at a young age I was prepared to serve in different positions as I advanced throughout my time within the student ministry and now into college ministry. I have been serving within the church since I was in 5th grade, nearly 10 years ago.

I currently serve in our church worship team on Sunday mornings. I play bass guitar and sing on praise team occasionally. I also am a Disciple-Now small group leader and help with Judgment House, Upward Basketball and mission trips throughout the year.

Leaders In Training combines intentional discipleship with training for ministry. Children find purpose and identity in the body of Christ through ministering using their spiritual gifts.

“L.I.T. has impacted our family in ways that are unmeasurable. We have seen children as young as second grade step out in faith. You have to be in it to see what happens.”

We believe equipped leaders make a huge impact on the lives of children. Therefore, we have become strategic in challenging leaders to model for children the Christian faith, and we give them a weekly guide to equip children within their groups.

We believe that parents are the primary spiritual influence on their child’s life. However, many families do not know where to begin. The L.I.T. and N.K. daily devotionals provide a tool for families to help develop their child’s personal walk with Christ and teach them to have a Christian worldview.
