Jim Griffin, NextGen Elementary Leader
Jim Griffin has been making a difference in the lives of our NextGen kids for over 15 years. He has been helping to guide our kids into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ by sharing practical advice and guidance on how Jesus can help them make wise choices, love others, and trust Him, no matter what. Jim faithfully and consistently leads elementary-aged boys every week at Springcreek, but his dedication doesn't stop there.
In case you haven't heard, Jim was recently recognized for saving a young boy's life. He was driving his regular school bus route on September 28 when he saw something that stopped him in his tracks. He saw a body lying in the street and immediately got out and dialed 911. Jim rolled the boy over and recognized him as one of the kids on his route. There was no pulse, so he started CPR to keep the teen alive until police and paramedics arrived to jump in and help. Jim's quick thinking and life-saving skills saved that boy's life.
Nabil Mohmoud, 16, was born with a heart defect but had it repaired soon after birth. He'd never had any problems until that day, when he forgot his wallet at home and ran back to get it. Fortunately for him, Jim Griffin was in the right place at the right time living out his faith.
Reflecting on what happened, Jim said, "God just puts people where He needs them to be when He needs them to be there."
We are so thankful that God put Jim Griffin right where he needed to be that day for Nabil. We are especially thankful and blessed to have Jim as one of our NextGen leaders right here at Springcreek making a difference every week in our kids' lives. Where do you need to be?
