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.

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

Intro by Eryn Aubey, Christ in Youth

Whose on this episode? 

Justin Herman Host

Kurt Johnston Host

Matt Deprez Fuller Youth Institute

Jonathan Morrow Director of Cultural Engagement and Immersion at Impact 360 Institute

00:37 Welcome

01:15 We talk about Joel Olsteen

05:11 Teaching Topics

24:31 Matt Duprez, The Importnace of Grandparents

44:40 Jonathan Morrow, talking about Generationn Z

Teaching Topics with Justin and Kurt

  • If you could only teach 3 topics (and the first 3 don’t count)

    • Identity
    • Sex/Dating
    • Spiritual Gifts
    • Wisdom (Justin)
    • Life of Christ (Kurt)
    • Misunderstood people of the Bible (Justin)
    • Fruit of the Spirit (Kurt)
    • The “other”—a mission series on how to make disciples (Justin)
    • Choices and their consequences (Kurt)

Matt Deprez (Fuller Youth Institute)—Grandparents faith on young people

  • Proximity Matters. Faith does not go up if they are closer but it does increase faith maturity—it skyrockets if they live with 50 miles.

    • Technology can replace proximity in a way. Video chatting is huge and do it to eat meals together.
  • Grandparents shaped issues of identity, belonging, and purpose rather than spiritual discipline
    • You develop properly being around experts and that applies to faith too
  • Faith modeling is HUGE
    • It will shape the maturity of the child.
    • Reading the Bible and serving constantly helped and led to better conversations
    • Send pictures, stories, and verses if you do not live close 

Jonathan Morrow—Generation Z 

  • The first “Post-Christian” generation

    • 10% Boomers, 7% gen x, 6% millennials, 4% gen z have a Biblical Worldview (Barna)
  • Oldest Gen Z is just heading into college. 2x likely as adults to identity as atheist. 34% are “nones”. 58% agree there is no one true religion
  • “How I feel” and “what is true for me “is their default response—they are Christian relativists
    • Change from feeling questions to thinking questions
  • Find a way to disrupt them.
    • Use provocative questions
    • Get Christianity back into the realm of reality
  • We need to have as sophisticated conversations in church as they are having online. There is age appropriate ways to handle these conversations.
    • We want to help walk them to good answers.
    • We cant just say nothing or they may “outgrow” their faith

Discussion Questions:

  1. If you could teach any topic what would it be?
  2. How are we utilizing the grandparents in our church?
  3. Are we using “feeling” questions or “thinking” questions for our group questions?
  4. How do we make our environments to make students feel welcome?
  5. How are we disrupting their rhythm?
  6. Are we having sophisticated conversations with our students?
