I, along with Andy and Dawn Vanasse, have the privilege of leading the Young Professionals Life Group here at Taylors FBC. We are made up of 20- and 30-year-olds who are college-graduate age and are in the workforce. We started in 2021 with a small but dedicated group of regular attendees and we have been blessed by the Lord’s faithfulness to see wonderful growth in attendance and participation. The Young Professionals come from a wide variety of backgrounds including education, workplace and hobbies. Our group has cultivated a wonderful, welcoming attitude towards our visitors that is truly empowered by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Another blessing to see as a leader has been witnessing the love for the Scriptures grow during our time together. In 2022 and early 2023 we worked through Galatians and 1 Peter. We just finished the book of Jonah using the new E3 Narrative Study Method and are excited to be starting the book of Colossians soon. God has been working in our group by building this community as described in the book of Acts through the teaching of the Word, having times of fellowship, eating together and praying for one another. We have even seen the Lord raising up new leaders from inside the group and it is exciting to see their development. We are trusting and believing that what God has started in us, He will continue!
