Emily B's intro

Hi, my name is Emily. I have just finished my A-levels and I am now starting the DisTIL programme with Adventure Plus.

I first heard about Adventure Plus when Jon Cox did a talk at our Word Alive youth meeting. The following year, I went to talk to those on the stand at word alive, and this is how I found out what the DisTIL year had to offer me.

I have come to Adventure Plus for a number of reasons. Firstly to have a break from study before going to university, and secondly to try and impact those lives I have the opportunity to work with.

As a teenager I was directly impacted by youth work at my church and at word alive. I believe reaching out to children with Gods word can have a real and lasting impact on their lives, and I am privileged to be in a position where I can do so.

I have enjoyed many different sports from a young age, but especially like being able to get outside and view Gods creation, whether through hiking or biking.

I look forward to being able to gain new skills in a variety of activities, developing as a leader and instructor and being able to work with many young people over the next year.
