Richard Snyder is the youth pastor in our church, and for the last almost 10 years has also been working with Youth Unlimited in the Comox Valley. However, God has been leading him down a new path, which he is very passionate and gifted in – equipping fathers. We have really seen how God has been preparing him for this ministry and are excited to see what God is going to do through this new ministry. If you have ever met any of the Snyders 6 kids, you will know that Richard and Tiffiny are doing something right in the parenting department – they are absolutely amazing kids and I love each one of them.
Here’s Richard’s summary of what Malachi Man, the ministry he is founding is all about – Fathers have no greater role than to shepherd the hearts of their sons and daughters towards Jesus Christ. Among other things, this requires priority, wisdom, instruction, strategy and time. In our culture, approximately 80% of churched youth grow up to turn away from God. Something needs to change. The Bible offers substantial help for fathers and youth. Malachi Man exists to encourage, equip and empower fathers in identifying and fulfilling their biblical role of raising courageous, Christlike youth; while simultaneously helping youth honor their parents and embrace wisdom.
