REACH Columbia Union Urban Evangelism School

DSC_8875.jpg

For the last several months I have been working amongst a group of young people doing something completely different than what they are, but still  getting to know them. Our church, where I work, holds a school called REACH Columbia Union Urban Evangelism School which is of a different entity but of the same mission and goal. These students come for a year to learn about urban evangelism and to gain a closer relationship with Jesus. They learn both in the classroom and out in the field. A pretty intense program if you ask me, the spectator. :) Anyway, throughout the year Pastor Tara, their fearless leader, has asked me to take photos of their group. DSC_4205

The whole group at the beginning of the program. Most, if not all, of the students, sold literature door-to-door for 3 months prior to being here.

Over time I really got to know them and I have had plenty of laughs. I will miss them when they all go, but know more will be coming! These last two photos I took for their Christmas card. Here they are all looking official.

And this! This is how things really are and I will probably print this one out as an 8x10 and hang it in a frame. Their personalities are definitely reflected here. Maybe its because of me or maybe it is because of the car coming down the alley and I had to hurry like crazy. Who knows. :)
