Fishers of Men – Equipping Youth Leaders in Salmon Arm and Reaching the Next Generation

I had the opportunity to meet up with two of our Immerse students, Nathan Pawluck and Dan Steenson of Salmon Arm. Both Nathan and Dan also serve as Gospel Leaders – Pastoral Apprentices for youth ministries at Shuswap Community Church (SCC). They are both passionate about making a Kingdom impact in the lives of youth in beautiful Salmon Arm.
SCC Youth Ministry reaching out to the youth:
About 200-250 students attend their youth ministry each week and approximately 80-90% of these students come from unchurched homes.

“Over my time in Immerse and serving this ministry, I have had the opportunity to baptize 4 students, disciple 7 and send off two of those boys to Bible school” – Nathan Pawluck

Nathan and Dan actively disciple a group of students each week working through struggles of sin, pain and suffering.
“These are real-life adult problems and our students need help walking through the consequences of sin” – Nathan Pawluck

Vision for SCC Youth:
We exist to help students explore God, develop deep relationships and live out the Gospel.

“Recently, I had the opportunity to baptize a student in my small group and now I am discipling two students who are passionate about following Jesus and living out their faith. ” – Dan Steenson

Leadership Development for SCC:
SCC’s Youth Pastor and Northwest alumnus, Kolby Milton oversees the youth ministry and mentors Nathan and Dan. “ I am thankful for Bob Evans (Pastor at SCC Sicamous campus ) who was my mentor and now I have the same opportunity with Nathan and Dan each week – It keeps me sharp and makes me a better leader, husband and dad.”
Immerse, is designed to propel leaders to make a Kingdom impact now and for generations to come. We are thankful for the prayers and generosity of all our financial supporters who make this program affordable and possible for our students to graduate without incurring debt. Please prayerfully consider giving generously to our Student Sponsorship Fund. A Legacy Gift in your will is another option to give to students like Nathan and Dan.
