So I need some help. I have to figure out to get teenagers to embrace a missional mindset.
So here’s the deal: I lead a mid-sized Student Ministry at a very fast growing church that is preparing to open our first campus in a multi-site strategy. Specifically the challenge is our high school group. We have a tight-knit group that is understandably concerned about not seeing their friends and losing what they have.
The plan is to do small groups at each campus but on different nights with combined big events happening somewhere between monthly and quarterly. If we can get into it I think we will be fine, just trying to get there. Talking to others who have done this the key is getting students to embrace a missional mindset. That’s the what, I need help with the how.
A few thoughts I have at this point:
- Clearly casting the vision repeatedly
- Allowing students to have a say by presenting options
- Creating student leadership teams that have influence over programming
