Student Leadership Tip #4 (Mark Oestreicher)

  • Consider a leadership community rather than single serving leadership teams

    • All the teams in one
    • Adult and student leaders 

Justin and Kurt--topics to teach about leadership and servanthood (9:00)

  • Every other week do an inner quality and outer quality of a leader (Kurt)
  • Teaching ownership and learning from it (be able to fess up) (Justin)
  • Servant leadership (Kurt)
  • Following up on visitors (Kurt)
  • Don’t be a click (Kurt)
  • Plan an event (Kurt)
  • Honesty and timeliness (Kurt)
  • Generosity (Kurt)
  • Leverage Influence (Kurt)
    • Compassion
    • On marginalized people
  • Don’t do it alone (Justin)
  • Accountability (Justin)
  • Skill of assessment (gifts and wiring) (Justin)
  • Give feedback (Justin)

 

Charlie Kirk, Turning Point USA

  • A strong message can create a strong movement
  • Students are looking for a purpose to believe in
  • People are not correct just because they have degrees and someone else is a student
  • It just takes one person telling a student that they can do something good
  • Always ask more questions than you get asked
  • Don’t look at any interaction as a waste of time
  • 1 thing to tell students—embrace failure. Everyone will fail at something

Mark Oestreicher 

  • There is no reason why student leadership should be reserved high schoolers. Give them a taste of the leadership inside them if they are willing.

    • If you have them combined let the jr. high lead too in it
    • If you have separate have one in the jr. high ministry also
  • You want them to participate in things that will form them in powerful ways as their identities are being formed

Excellence in Jr. High Student Leadership Justin, Kurt, and some spiders

  • Give them opportunities to be involved

    • Don’t make your excellent definition so high they cannot participate
    • They will be wrong, but you need to affirm them in a positive way
  • The best way to learn leadership is to learn it in the trenches
    • They love to see their friends owning things
  • Ask other areas if they are open to serving in other areas besides children’s ministry and jr. high ministry
    • It gives them another caring adult in their life

 

Kenda Dean Student Leadership

  • If you want kids to be engaged as adults get them engaged as children
  • Give them a “load-bearing” role
  • Don’t hold on to tight to the reigns—never do ministry alone
  • With a team, you can share the authority
  • You need a diverse team in outlook and demographics (cause that what the kids are)
  • You must be a trustworthy colleague
  • Learn to pastor your bosses (teach the kids to care for those in authority)
  • Learn how to do youth ministry to grown-ups.
    • We are good at meeting kids where they are but not adults.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Where are our students serving?
  2. Are we allowing middle schoolers to serve as leaders?
  3. Does each of us have someone to do youth ministry with?
  4. Are we meeting our adults where they are as good as we reach our students?

Justin and Kurt “answer” questions by Scott Nolan 

  • How do you narrow do student leaders?

    • You have to know whatever model you choose may be hurting feelings of students who are not involved.
  • What are some topics students need to hear, discuss, and live out?
  • Resources for student leaders?
  • How do you do a student leader retreat?
    • Just like a camp. Decide where you want to go and tweak accordingly
    • Is it just for the best of the best or is everyone invited and at the end of the week do you decide if you want to promote a smaller leader retreat with the cream of the crop.
    • Don’t market it a fun and zany weekend.
    • Have students help plan the retreat
    • High can be the best time to develop leaders.
  • Size of the student leadership team?
    • There are options for everyone

 

Marko 5 Tips on Student Leadership (in no order) 

  • Some of your best student leaders are the ones who wouldn’t apply or participating. Be a competency facilitator. Identify and nurture potential

    • Get to know your context and students
    • Help the ones see the leader in themselves
    • You need to see the strengths in them that they cannot
    • Give them places to experiment with that

 

Jeff Wallace on student leadership 

  • Think

    • Discover our student’s talents and gifts—then develop it—and deploy them.
    • We don’t want to teach kids what to think but how to think.
    • We teach what we know but reproduce what we are—John Maxwell
    • If the IPhone is upgrading every 18 months why shouldn’t we think youth ministry is?
    • Help kids understand their wiring. Give personality tests.
    • Teach them more than the word. Teach how to live out life.
    • Always asses. You cannot correct what you cannot confront. Bring in someone from the outside to get an honest look and see your blind spots.
  • Dream
    • Once you teach them to think. Have them dream not only what they can do but what the ministry can do. What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail?
    • Have a youth council or leadership team and write the dreams.
    • You need kids who are not completely connected. The best way to reach outsiders is to know outsiders.
    • Vision Casting is key to get this set up.
  • Lead
    • This is a byproduct of thinking and dreaming. What happens is that they begin to become leaders that are head and shoulders above.
  • Random question
    • What about students living different outside of church?

      • Hold them accountable. Other students are watching you and you need to confront them. But do it with grace and respect.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Are there students who have potential but aren’t participating?
  2. Are we being “competency facilitators”?
  3. Are we “developing and deploying” our students?
  4. Are we teaching kids how to think?
  5. Are we holding them accountable?
