The Gathering Partners with TCS
The Christ School is delighted to partner with The Gathering, an established Christian men’s organization, to provide a service and leadership opportunity for our middle school boys. Ten different TCS middle school boys will be invited to attend The Gathering’s monthly luncheons. In addition to lunch, the meeting features a message delivered by a reknown guest speaker. The Christ School students will serve the meal and then sit and eat lunch with the men. This event provides TCS students the opportunity to demonstrate service and leadership as they engage with male role models who are Christian leaders in their work place. Prior to the first meeting, which took place on September 13, Brett Kreider, Director of The Gathering Orlando, spoke to our middle school boys during their Advisory meeting. He outlined three important traits he has used with his own children that will also benefit our young men in their journey to adulthood, and provided specific tips on how best to interact with others.
- Be Respectful: When addressing an adult, look them in the eyes.
- Be Confident: Introduce yourself with a firm handshake.
- Be Curious: Ask questions – everyone likes to talk about themselves and asking questions breaks down barriers.
The meeting was a wonderful kick-off to this partnership and service opportunity with The Gathering. The Christ School looks forward to a successful year watching these young men grow and mature in all aspects of their life, but especially in their walk with Christ.
