Our goal at Overflow is to help middle and high school youth in their 100-mile-an-hour lives learn how to stop the spin, run back to God, find forgiveness and hope, and move back out ready to love and serve others.
What is Overflow?
Overflow is a rhythm: As God pours his love into our hearts, we find the refreshment our soul craves. A refreshed soul moves back out into everyday relationships ready to restore what is broken — to love instead of hate, to give instead of take, to serve instead of demand. A group of people continually having their hearts refreshed and relationships restored becomes a force in their community. As Jesus himself so profoundly said, “He who’s been forgiven much, loves much.” Rest. Restore. Renew. That is the Overflow of the Christian life we long to promote here among Redeemer’s youth.
Resting, restoring and renewing is a rhythm that must be cultivated. We work Overflow into everyday life by promoting the following connections:
Truth + Life
What is the difference between understanding the truth of God's love for me in Jesus and standing under those truths in a way that overwhelms and impacts my life?
Parents + Children
How does my identity as God's dearly loved child in Jesus define and shape the relationships in my home? How does God's love motivate and empower me to restore those relationships?
Individual + Community
How does my identity as God's dearly loved child in Jesus call and empower me to live as light in a dark world? What does it look like to love others the way I've been loved by God?
Director of Youth Ministry
Caleb is a graduate of North Greenville University and a student at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He began attending Redeemer as a freshman in college and has been involved ever since. Newly married, he and his lovely wife Lauryn are looking forward to a life of ministry together. Caleb enjoys pretentious movies, British comedy, anything written by G. K. Chesterton, writing the first two sentences of numerous book ideas, and uproarious theological discussions with friends. If he had his druthers, he would go back in time to chat in a dim British pub with the Inklings.
