In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Recently, I received a youth ministry position at a cluster parish in Palmyra and Marion. During my two months at this parish—St. Anne’s Church and St. Gregory’s Church—I have had the opportunity to explore the field of ministry, meeting and interacting with many individuals. From these experiences, which have been both joyful and challenging, I have had the chance to learn, enjoy, and grow as a Youth Minister."
