Maple Trail ministry consultant Brandon Carrier is working with Hopewell Baptist Church in Harrodsburg, KY, on how to begin a youth ministry strategy in a sister church. Carrier leads the youth ministry at Pioneer Baptist Church in Harrodsburg, were he serves as the associate pastor.
Carrier was sought out by Hopewell pastor Brian Burkhead. Burkhead knew that he needed help in getting the youth ministry off the ground. The Hopewell youth ministry has been inactive for several years and leaders in the church are seeking to reach students for Christ.
Burkhead and Carrier are meeting regularly on how to launch this effort and how they can work together is seeing more teenagers in Mercer Country involved in the local church.
