On this special episode of Student Ministry That Matters, Ben Trueblood talks to Lifeway’s girls ministry specialist, Amanda Mejias. Amanda shares how she was impacted by discipleship—specifically girls ministry—as a teenager, and how that has shaped her faith journey. Amanda’s story serves as an encouragement in the importance of finding volunteer leaders who can invest in students alongside you. In this episode, Ben and Amanda also discuss what’s next for Lifeway Girls.
Amanda Mejias serves as the Lifeway Girls Brand Specialist, which is just a super fun way of saying that she serves parents and leaders of teen girls. After serving on church staff for many years, she is passionate about building relationships and creating resources that equip the local church. Amanda has been married to her wonderful husband, Brandon, for almost five years, and they have a daughter named Blakely. When she is not chasing her toddler around, Amanda is always down to hear a good joke, meet for coffee, and talk about her golden retriever.
