Katie Edwards Saddleback Message,

 Justin and Kurt: After a lesson what are response time options?

Three categories to think about:

  1. The traditional Response
  2. An in-service activity
  3. On your own during the week

 Katie Edwards: 5 Things youth workers should know.

Amanda Anderson: All My Friends Have Issues

“You need to be able to relate in a healthy and safe way. We are told that we have to “be real” however not everything is able to be shared. If you can do that then you can lead students to do this well.”

“Fun is something that leads to trust and relationships for middle schoolers and can open doors”

 

Albert Tate: Albert Tate Podcast  Fellowship Monrovia

 “Make sure you are pouring your life into those kids and are experiencing community and discipleship. Be satisfied at knowing that the kingdom of God is being expanded because of your labor and investment.”

“Get creative and innovative and when there are opportunities to bless the church and service the senior leadership and affirm and encourage them that they work they are doing is creating spaces for transformation to happen in the lives of these young people”

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.

Kenda Creasy Dean

 

 

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?
