While working the Moments of Hope booth at the NRB International Broadcasting Conference in Orlando, FL, Julie Knox comes to my booth and tells me her story. I ask for an interview and she said yes!

Julie grew up in Northern Ireland during their civil war as the child of a police officer. She later worked as a Journalist for the BBC in London. Now she is with OM Mission Ships that is a world traveling floating library and training ship for the 400 volunteers onboard Logos Hope. They get on-the-job missions and ministry practical experience, as well as cultural and socio-economic exposure in all the places they visit and among all the groups of people they interact with.

They also have great Christian teachers speaking on the ship regularly and the volunteers are supported into leading devotions and developing their own preaching skills, etc. A couple of years on the ship is often a fast-track to further long-term Christian work. Find out how you can be a part of their program for 3-months or more.

Serena Parkinson Burrows was one of my students in student ministry.  At 18 years of age she became one of my best volunteers. Discipled by my wife Colleen and another volunteer, Karen Mielke, Serena volunteered and passed on her knowledge to middle school girls while organizing our programs for more than 10 years. She is the wife of a professional drummer, Jason Burrows, and raises their two little girls. She is to this day a surfer as she was raised to be by her Florida parents and her little first born girl wants to follow suit. Serena's story will help you to treat your volunteers like gold and what you should do and how you should protect your volunteers.

Eustis, Florida, Mayor Robert Morin is a motivator and a man who just loves people. After meeting his son who is a senior in high school, Cesar, I can see that not only does he love people but his family loves him. When your high school son says great things about you, something right is happening at home. Robert was in Army intelligence, and also received a masters degree in public administration which qualifies him to manage city government. What's in it for me, youth worker nation? This man has worked with DCF and has seen the best of the best families and youth workers and the worst of the worst. This is one confident man who has a vision for a city.
