EUM – Young Adults Ministry
|Written by Chad -|
We are so excited to be a part of the Young Adults Ministry movement at Evangelical United Methodist Church (EUM). God truly breathed life into this new ministry with an amazing staff leader—Mitch Buenger—and some amazing Young Adult volunteers. It has been really cool to work with Mitch and EUM to create an identity for this ministry from the ground up.
The ultimate goal for the Young Adults Ministry is to reach a generation of young adults for Jesus, invite them into a community rooted in Him, and to move closer to God through serving like Jesus. Young Adult ministry opportunities are meant to focus on life stages: college-age, young adult singles, young married couples, and young families. We generalize our group to be between the ages of 18-30. However, anyone who fits the young adult lifestyle who may be older is strongly welcomed.
With our skills as graphic designers, we wanted to help push this movement forward, visually, so that people are drawn to be part of it. Alongside Mitch, we prayed for guidance and hit the drawing boards. Here's what we came up with:
After launching the material to the congregation, Mitch had some nice words to say to us—this is why we do what we do!
"I’ve worked with Langhoff Creative several times now for projects related to my job as the Director of Young Adult Ministry at my church. Chad and Amber are professionals and they work extremely well with people. Never once did I feel threatened by their opinions or suggestions. Without even asking, they had already taken notice of what I was currently using and some themes I was leaning toward and then they incorporated little bits of them into their design. I always felt assured that they would produce the result that I originally had in mind. They took my idea for a logo and made it come to life and it ended up looking even better than it first did in my head. Without a doubt, Chad and Amber make it obvious that they offer their services to tell your story, not what they think your story should be. They are in it for you; to make you happy. They produce a first draft promptly and continue sending you drafts and updates until you both arrive at a final product. I never felt out of the loop and every e-mail ended with a request for my input. I would recommend Langhoff Creative to anyone. I find myself referencing them often to co-workers and friends. These are real people with real gifts. They’re great at what they do because it truly is their passion."
One of the ways EUM's Young Adult Ministry reaches out is through "First Fridays". They are gatherings of Young Adults to hangout, do a devotional time, worship together and go out into the community as friends. So, if you are a young adult living in the Southeastern part of Wisconsin, come check it out! We'd love to have you & would love to get to know you as we hangout with others in the area. We hope to see you there!
