2012 Trailblazer Winter Retreat

The Trailblazer kids at Salem had a very meaningful time at Pilgrim Pines this past January.

Colleen and Al Kim led us in worship and speaking at the event. Colleen is beginning her sixth year of service as the Director of Children’s Ministries at Bethany Covenant Church in Berlin, Ct. Her husband Al joined her in leading the Trailblazers for this weekend. Both have answered God’s call to serve children, youth and families for 25 years in a variety of churches and settings. Their sons Andrew and Aaron also joined them this weekend: Andrew is in 7th grade and plays violin in their worship band “Red Letter Day” and Aaron attends as a 5th grade camper.

Joining Al and Colleen in leading worship this weekend was: Allie Juchniewicz (their niece) on guitar, Chris Savage (who has teamed in ministry with Al and Colleen for 20 years), Ann Sharnick on vocals (with the band for 8 years), and Kevin Snyder on drums (Andrew’s classmate and friend).

Together, their hope and vision is to see kids engage in deeper, vibrant relationships with God through the power of His Holy Spirit, and be equipped with the tools and information to live passionate, dynamic Christian lives.
