Sarah Buhr

Hello there! My name is Sarah Buhr and I am the Jr. High Director here at Quail Lakes Baptist Church. I have been working with Jr. High and all forms of youth since 2003 and I love it! I am a full time teacher (maestra de espanol) and I coach volleyball from 9 and 10 year olds all the way up to collegiate athletes. I have been involved in sports my whole life and I believe those experiences taught me many valuable lessons in teamwork, motivation, determination, and drive. I graduated from East Tennessee State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Foreign Language and a Minor in Education. I have lived in Stockton since 1989 and I have a heart for this city and its youth. I love my job(s) and I cannot promise perfection, but I can promise hard work, passion, and perseverance. I believe God has gifted me with an ability to love youth and has called me to work with them. I look forward to building meaningful relationships with the youth at Quail, but more than that, I look forward to seeing them develop a lasting relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

In His Service,
Sarah

Our Mission

It is our mission to create a Youth Mentoring environment where positive life changing experiences are produced through Christian mentoring. It is our desire to develop and maintain a group of willing men and women of Godly character who are spiritually equipped, to possess the skills to mentor to youth who need a role model within the QLBC family and surrounding community.

Our Vision

To provide Christian Mentors willing to come alongside the children of the next generation, to promote positive life changing experiences to help them reach their God given potential.

What is Youth Mentoring?

Simply stated, mentoring is when a mature, caring adult spends time with a younger individual with similar interests. It is a fact that mentored youth do better in the areas that are most significant in their development. Christian mentoring has the added benefit of offering the opportunity of spiritual growth which comes as a simple and natural result of adult Christians investing their lives in today’s youth.

Why Mentoring?

Mentoring is proven effective in helping vulnerable youth to work through life obstacles, avoid youthful pitfalls, and fulfill their potential. It is also helpful for parents to have an additional voice, someone who can understand their situation, and also support them through their struggles.

What difference does it make?

Volunteer mentors serve as a friend and role model, making a significant and measurable difference in a young person's self-esteem, social skills, school performance, and decision-making skills. Mentored youth are more likely to: avoid self-destructive activities and strengthen their hope and vision for the future. Parents also find hope through a caring friend who can listen and “mentor” them through the ups and downs of raising children.
