Wildcat Spotlight: Jack Baker | Westminster

每个月,巴黎人官方网登录网址(Westminster Schools of Augusta)都会有一名高年级学生参加问答活动&A named “The Wildcat Spotlight.” First up is senior Jack Baker. When asked what his main goals are on the SLT team, 杰克解释说,他希望继续让学生们在威斯敏斯特的学习成为一种愉快和难忘的经历. “To me, 让学校关注基督的最好方法,就是要有优秀的跟从基督的领袖. Thus, 我希望上帝能通过我的SLT工作来协调教堂的讲者, worship leaders for devotionals, and chapels for the Upper School. It has been a joy to witness God work through these speakers!” Please continue to read Jack Baker’s Q&A interview with Marketing Intern and sophomore, Randale Pete! 

Q: What are some of your favorite hobbies?

Jack: 我喜欢看体育比赛,主要是英超联赛和大学足球赛. Also, I love playing these sports both for Westminster, Augusta Arsenal Soccer Club, and just with friends. Being very competitive, I always want to participate in other skilled games like sports, board games, video games, or card games. 我和我的三个妹妹也很亲近,喜欢和她们在一起. Additionally, 我喜欢加入巴黎人官方网登录网址在第一长老会的青年小组, 我在哪里帮助初中青年团,并热切地参加高中青年团, trips, and bible studies. Finally, 我很高兴能成为今年的学生领导团队的一员,并帮助安排和组织许多学校活动, specifically to me, chapels.

Q: What sports do you play? 

Jack: I play football, soccer, and run track.

Q: What do you prioritize in your life?

Jack: 每天上学前,我都在考虑上帝会如何利用这一天.  我绝对把青年团作为我生活中最重要的一部分,因为我喜欢我所经历的社区,通过与其他初高中学生和巴黎人官方网登录网址的青年团领导人的互动. Maintaining good grades consumes much of my time as well.

Q: Do you do any service activities? If so, how has it affected your life?

Jack: 在中学青年团帮扶是我主要的服务活动. 在一个演讲者演讲后,和八年级的男生一起领导一个讨论小组,这无疑帮助了我的沟通/对话技能. 有机会简单地询问中学生的日常生活或学校情况,让我认识到友谊和沟通的重要性. 被置于领导的位置,促使我考虑如何才能对年轻学生产生积极的影响. 总的来说,它让我更加注意和考虑我周围的环境.

Q: What is your favorite bible verse? How has it impacted you and your decisions? 

Jack: 《巴黎人官方网登录网址》第84篇对我来说是一个巨大的鼓励,因为它谈到了永恒,描述了一个人在天堂里做一个简单的仆人是多么有福. 这一章说,这将远远超过居住在地球上的皇室. 诗篇也提醒我,基督徒是多么有福,他们有一个永恒与上帝保证跟随他. 最后,它激励我在困难面前继续为基督而活.

Q: How does this year's school theme, “So Am I” apply to you?

Jack: 在《巴黎人官方网登录网址》中,这一主题的诗句教导基督徒要以保罗为榜样(他也同样以基督为榜样),这激励我更深入地阅读圣经,探寻耶稣是如何生活的,然后试着将其应用到我自己的生活中. 我喜欢这个主题,因为每当我读到它,我就会想起“我也是为耶稣而活”.’

Q: Favorite memory during your time at Westminster? 

Jack: 在岩鹰4H中心的新生静修绝对棒极了, 但我想我最喜欢的是我大三春天和我最好的朋友踢足球的记忆. 不过,这个即将到来的足球赛季将会留下许多美好的回忆!

问:作为一名大四学生,你对威斯敏斯特大学的新生有什么忠告或忠告吗?

Jack: Definitely try to focus in class and prioritize your time. Always be looking for ways to be productive. Your time in high school only becomes busier,  尤其是大四的时候,当你在上课和申请大学的时候. 

Q: What would you like to study in college?

Jack: I definitely want to study history, English, and foreign affairs. 我对法律也很感兴趣,我想去英国留学, travel to other parts of the world, and maybe learn other languages. 

Q: What inspired you to be on the SLT Team?

Jack: 我觉得上帝可以利用我在这里产生影响,让我成为一个领导者. 我想帮助威斯敏斯特成为一个更有吸引力和福音为中心的选择,未来的家庭考虑威斯敏斯特,并帮助学校继续成为一个愉快和难忘的经历的学生. 让学校的目光聚焦在基督身上的最好方法,就是要有跟随基督的领袖. Thus, 我盼望神通过我的主要的教会工作,为高中的祷告和教堂协调教堂讲者和敬拜领袖. 到目前为止,能透过这些讲者见证神的工作是一件很快乐的事!
