At 4:12 Student Ministries we teach students how to pick up their own Cross. We accomplish this through practical, everyday lessons, which apply Christ Centered Living into our student's daily life.
Hi, my name is Aaron Brenner and I’m the Family Pastor for Uptown Church. It’s been very exciting to look back over my life and see how God has used every detail to bring me to the place of Youth Ministry. I was born in a Jewish home, I followed Judaism religiously until I was 18. I found that when I walked away from my Jewish roots, I had more questions than answers. For the next 17 years I wandered away from the Lord and had intense struggles. By the grace of God, He didn’t leave me to wander, He found me! It was then that I had what I like to refer to as my Proverbs moment. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) I submitted my life to Him and He straighten out my paths. From there, He ignited a fire for Him in my heart and soul!
