Owen's Story

Owen attended The Academy Camps in 2015 and 2016. This is his story of hope.

"Reciting this all to myself, I still feel lonely. I still feel rejected. I still feel despair. I still am overwhelmed by my pain. I still, in fact, feel hopeless. But, in God, I know a hope that is bigger than my feelings. I know that I am loved. I know that I have a Reward and a Shield. And I know that he will get me through this."

Pastor Chad's Story

Chad Merrihew is the youth pastor at Grace Fellowship Church in Costa Mesa. He has been a Wheatstone Partner for four years, using Discussion for Transformation and Teach Them to Pray to train his youth ministry staff. This is his story of hope.

"The new center of our ministry is discussing the Bible: giving students the platform to ask questions about their faith. And everyday, I see how it’s worked. Our youth group has tripled in size, it has more unchurched kids than ever, we retain our staff for years, and our ministry has become so much deeper."

Chad helped lead Wheatstone for four and a half years. Now, as he transitions to a new adventure, he reflects on how Wheatstone continues to give him hope.

"Together, we’ve witnessed great ministry and great miracles. Each of them have reminded me, time after time, of the power of working in the light of hope, secured by God’s great love for us."
