Halloween tips:

  • Get involved in helping with the kids ministry event

 

Volunteer Cycle (Justin and Kurt)

  • Enlist
  • Equip
  • Empower
  • Encourage

 

Tim Harlow author of What made Jesus Mad

  • Don’t give the students an inauthentic Jesus
  • Make your teaching about the vision and passion of Jesus
    • He was not always warm and cuddly
  • You can have righteous anger without adding to the problem
    • Jesus showed restraint at times where we show anger

 

Phyllis, Middle School Matters

  • Do not minimize their distress. Middle School heartbreak is real heartbreak
  • You will build a wall if you dismiss their pain
  • If they ask about dating engage them in communication and ask open ended questions
  • You need to worry about the kids doing the bullying too and teach them what it means to be kind and civil
  • Encouraging girls in leadership
    • Embrace a broader definition of leadership. You do not have to be outward facing to be a leader.

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?

Mark Oestreicher  #13 thing he loves about Jr. High Students

  • You can still take ‘em

 Ben Trueblood(Lifeway Students, Director of Student Ministry)

  • Parent Ministry

    • How do you get parents to embrace their role as spiritual leaders?

      • Use different phrasing and equip them. Many do not know how to disciple. So disciple the parents. By: Groups for parents, or student pastor jumping in, or partner with other ministry environments. You can start with a few parents and then send them out to disciple others.
      • Don’t try and be a Subject Matter Expert on parenting if you are not.

Jeff Wallace(Right Now Media, Director of LYFT tour and Youth Pastor Summit)

  • Student Leader Selection Process

    • No need to be rooted or long but you need a step to make sure they are serious

      • Ask Grade
      • Ask their passion
      • Ask how they define leadership and why they want to lead
      • Put references but don’t make a big deal (ask for a teacher or coach who has seen them lead)

Caleb Kaltenbach (Founder of The Messy Grace Group)

  • How do you handle LGBTQ?

    • You need to be having conversations about this, so you do not overreact when it happens.
    • Ask questions and set appropriate boundaries. Ask questions and do not throw out Bible verses.
    • Thank them for trusting you and dig deep to get to know more
    • You must be comfortable with them coming and not correcting everything they do
      • Still, need boundaries like with heterosexual students
      • Dating couples in different cabins and groups
    • Your job is not to fix them
    • It is your job to help them identify with Jesus more and make that their primary identity
    • It is not about behavior anymore but more about how they identify
    • Be intentional in all things you teach and how you reach (1 Cor. 9:19-23)
    • Trans-students?
      • Tread carefully. You do not want to embarrass or humiliate a student. Each situation is different, and conversations are essential.
    • Always remember to live in grace and truth
