Bo & Julie Davis
It’s so Fulfilling to See What the Lord Does Through This Ministry
We had a chance to sit down and interview Bo and Julie Davis last spring and hear their testimonies. Their stories are consistent with what we are hearing from other churches. Julie shared, “We get to see so many kids start from first grade, and now they are in youth still serving. It is so neat to watch their growth. We have a first grader (our son) who is learning to spend time with the Lord daily, and he loves it. Both of our boys have given their lives to Christ through this ministry. Last year, our son Joshua gave his life to Christ on the mission trip during the Kids Blitz.”
During the interview, Bo shared, “I never thought I would be working in Children’s Ministry. It’s so fulfilling to see what the Lord does through this ministry and through these children. There are spiritual disciplines that they learn. To see the spiritual gifts pulled out of them is absolutely incredible. To put it on a very personal level, I wasn’t saved until I was 18 years old. I didn’t know anything about church or discipleship. To see my boys learning these disciplines and giving their lives to Christ at a young age is so rewarding as a parent….to learn these things at a young age, to learn how to serve and why it is important to serve the body of Christ. The fact that we have seen so many of our original L.I.T.s—fifth and sixth graders—who are now juniors and seniors…I don’t have enough fingers to count how many are serving on Wednesday nights. This also includes those who are actually leading groups. It is incredible!” (Bo & Julie Davis are parents, and they serve as the L.I.T. and Nehemiah Kids Directors at Hillcrest Baptist Church, Cedar Hill, Texas.)
