    TOMMY EVANS

    Impacting the World for Christ in Memphis, TN

    I am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade social studies at Kingsbury Middle School, a public school in Memphis, TN. This is my 4th year teaching at Kingsbury. My time at Emmaus has prepared me as a teacher by training me to think critically and ask tough questions, which, as a history teacher, is what I teach my students daily. Emmaus also gave me ample opportunities to serve a variety of people – from prospective/current students, faculty, staff, the local church, the community, among others. I believe the Lord has used these opportunities to prepare me for the variety of people I serve at my current school – parents, students, fellow teachers, administrators, community partners, etc.

     

    My Emmaus education gave me a firm foundation in God’s Word as well as an understanding of history. It has been through my biblical lens, framed through my time at Emmaus, that I engage my students in instruction, correction, reinforcement, etc. And it is because of the tutelage of Emmaus professors, like the late Dr. Patten, that I am able to give my students a lens to view history and seek to impact my students and the world for Christ.

    DUSTY + KRISTIN JONES

    Impacting the World for Christ in Des Moines, Washington

    Kristin and I are involved in full time youth ministry. I am the Youth Director at Des Moines Gospel Chapel in Des Moines, Washington. I oversee the middle school and high school youth groups as well as the teen Sunday school. Emmaus prepared me to write curriculum as I learned how to dig deep into God’s Word, obtaining vital truth for believers and hope for unbelievers. I am also responsible for the teaching of this curriculum which is my favorite part! Before Emmaus, I didn’t have the skills that I needed to be an effective communicator of God’s Word. Having been trained well at Emmaus, and with the essential help and grace of the Holy Spirit, I feel confident to faithfully and accurately teach God’s truth to spiritually starving teens. It is my joy to take students up to Lakeside Bible Camp and see God use the environment, concentrated studies on God’s Word, and godly relationships to foster spiritual rebirth and spiritual maturity. Emmaus’ Camping Program, as well as the internship at Forest Springs, have been invaluable to my education. I was taught to think critically about how to bring truth to students in the context of camp and the church.

     

    Emmaus has taught me the importance of using relationships to foster spiritual growth and maturity, as well as help foster a Biblical desire to see spiritually lost people become spiritually reconciled to Christ. Using relationships and Biblical truth have allowed me to bring the Word of God to a starving culture. As a youth pastor, I have to critically evaluate the physical and spiritual needs of my students; I would not have the ability to impact them for Christ at this level without Emmaus’ training.
