Jones ADATC has helped me develop awareness of my areas of professional and personal strengths and limitation. I was fortunate enough to have a sensitive field-site supervisor who emphasized my capabilities, provided positive and constructive feedback, and gave me a lot of encouragement.

The foundation of my theology and philosophy of youth ministry has been majorly molded by my home church, which is a very traditional Southern Baptist Church. There are many aspects that I would change which is what will be outlined in this paper. The two main aspects I would reprioritize are; how parents influence the ministry and how discipleship is approached. During the course of this paper, I will cover my philosophy of youth ministry by developing a mission statement, then developing a purpose based off the mission statement, followed by using the purpose and mission statement to develop a vision for youth ministry and finally developing a strategy to put the above theology into a practical application. Mission Statement My mission
Sitting in the red-cushioned seats in front of a plasma TV the size of two elephants, popcorn in hand, I never expected to have one of the worst days of my life. As a child, I was often well behaved. I said my please and thank-you’s, I was kind to my little sister, Brianna, and I was attentive in school. I enjoyed following the rules and I always tried to stay out of trouble—until I visited Bed Bath & Beyond on my seventh birthday. A family tradition between Brianna, my mom, and myself was to visit the movie theaters whenever a new family film was released.
I am very dedicated to learning all that I can so that I will be prepared for college and I see this class as especially important for my future. As a veteran of an intensive honors and advanced placement schedule, I see the work load that I will receive in this class as not an issue compared to what I have been capable of in the past. In college, I plan to continue religious studies. I am very fascinated with world cultures and I see religion as one of the greatest driving forces in development of culture. By taking Honors Christology, I will be able to get a head start by studying a very important religion and the figure who started it.
In the previous video I practised particular counselling skills, which when combined, increased the support given to the client. As I provided the client with attention, by having an open body language, nodding and using hand gestures, they continued to speak about the situation and how it is affecting them. I was then able to paraphrase and ask open questions which the client answered, going into further depth as I had, and was, showing that I was paying attention. By challenging the client through questioning, we were able to discuss and identify the main problem for the individual and create an action plan in order for the client to reach their goals, feeling a sense of progression.
My purpose was to advocate on behalf of a child by informing all the professionals present of the child’s wishes and feelings, as well as offer my professional opinion to persuade them on the child’s best interests. From my input, the Child Protection Plan noted specific positive and risk factors that I raised, including arrangement for the child to safely socialise with friends to boost their self-esteem and resilience, and the mother to not have inappropriate conversations in earshot of the child. Although the latter point linked to the mother’s behaviour, she was in agreement because she acknowledged my concern as genuine due to us already having an established rapport. Multi-agency working has been consistent throughout my time on placement, either during professional meetings, like core groups which I have chaired, or on a daily basis via telephone or face-to-face. Whenever information has been shared between professionals it has been done appropriately and respectfully, on a need to know basis and with prior parental consent, unless this put the child at risk of harm.
