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

EPISODE OUTLINE!

Junior High Webcast coming up with Justin and Kurt on July 2 11 am CST on magnetic middle school ministry. How you can be attractive and missional that kids are drawn too with a missional aspect.

How to make the game time the best it can be—Justin and Kurt (04:37)

  • Design it around the person with the least amount of skill in the room.
  • Don’t do it by gender.
  • Don’t try and force the game into your theme.
  • Don’t force the kids to participate if they don’t want to play.
  • Fun isn’t always games—it can be a skit or a bit on stage.
  • Payoff must be equal or greater than the setup.
  • Be clear and fair. Jr. Higher’s are justice oriented.
  • Once in a while figure out how to involve specials needs students
  • Do fun games but don’t make it the focus.
  • Don’t apologize for doing games. They build trust and learn teamwork.

Youth Ministry Dog (22:30)

Interview Tips (30:43 ) Matt Lewis

  • If you do what you say and show up and honor the commitment, you will be fine
  • Don’t have a scarcity mentality. Fifteen minutes can turn into hours of content when the publicist tells others you honored the agreement.

Isaac Morehouse (35:03) CEO of Crash and Founder of Praxis

  • Find something besides a degree to add to your resume to show your skill, and you have done something.

    • Intern for free to learn the skills
  • Do not be afraid to fail or experiment to find the solution
  • Dominate your niche
  • Two main things matter in the market place
    • Create Value
    • Prove you can create value
    • Don’t do things you hate
    • Don’t do things you are terrible at
  • Your resume needs to be more than bullet points
  • Narrow down the companies you are applying to and do something extraordinary
  • Find a need and show it to them (make them a Facebook page and give it to them, send them a logo if it is low resolution, offer to work for free)
  • Create a project that shows your skills in a tangible way

Anthony Vargas (1:02:03) 7 Jr. High Tips

  1. Know the name of Jr. High Students, leaders, and parents.
  2. Every Monday, pick five students and send them a letter.
  3. Try to interact with Jr. high students five senses when teaching the Bible
  4. Embrace their digital world
  5. Go out and evangelize with your students. They need to see it lived out.
  6. The feedback of students is vital.
  7. The only thing they need from you is a heart that has been with Jesus.

 

Discussion Questions:

  1. How are we strategically using our game time? What should we start doing, stop doing, and keep doing?
  2. Have you/we reached out to someone outside the church for a meeting? If so did you/we honor them or leave a bad taste about you or our organization? How can you/we improve?
  3. What is your unique intersection of skills and abilities?
  4. Do we know all of our volunteer’s names? Do they know their kid’s names?
  5. What have we learned from our students? When was the last time we asked them (if ever)?

Recruiting Volunteers—Justin and Kurt

  1. Why Summer is the best time to recruit leaders

    • You have a lot of fun events and gives people a taste of students at their craziest. Get a leader to see the beauty in that and they will go crazy over them in group.
    • You can’t take the summer off from recruiting cause fall is coming
  2. Language to use
    • What did you do last year to say you moved the needle on spiritual life in me and around me?

      • No matter the answer ask them about investing in a Jr. High Student this year. Everyone had someone or wished they had someone and they can pay it forward or be the person they needed.
  1. Don’t say someone’s no for them

    • Make the ask and let them say no. Don’t be afraid to ask
  2. Have a 2-3 minute elevator pitch
  3. Your best recruiters are people already serving and attending.
    • Who in their circle can they ask?
    • Get students to ask.
  4. Invite them into something specific
  5. Don’t have eyes bigger than your stomach
    • Are you ready if you grew by 10 leaders tomorrow? Is there is a plan and process in place so they are not in the queue for 6 months?

Katie Edwards (DYM Podcast and Saddleback Church)

  • Connecting with females in your youth ministry

    • Focus on the times you are with them weekly. Have those spaces to have significant conversations.
    • Healthy touch is important
      • A high five is touch. It does not always have to be a hug.
    • Great eye contact and get rid of distractions. Give warmth in your voice and how you ask questions
  • Keeping volunteers
    • Create a family community that will minister to the family (their students)
  • Katie-isms to cast vision and leadership
    • People over protocol, people over programs. Love people well. The goal is love and care for people if they are in the church or not.
  • Innovation and Newness to the ministry
    • Never Stop Learning. Learning leads to innovation
    • Evolve with what’s best for the kids—think of new ways to communicate
    • When brainstorming make sure you have different thinkers, ages, and other
    • different types of people
    • Don’t skip the debrief—successful idea/event or not
  • Make sure you understand the audience. The more you know the lower your frustration will be and help you be more effective
  • Practice and experience things together with a middle schooler. (serving, learning scripture, etc)
  • Missions
    • Getting them into environments with they partner with the local church in other spaces

      • Expands their view of the kingdom
      • Helps them see outside of themselves
    • Middle schoolers are fearless and are willing to step into things and having a life changing experience like that can get them into next level ministry
    • Find an organization that your church trusts to take care of the “scary stuff” and then you can just be with the students

 

Mike Branton (Christ in Youth)

  • Environments—Where you meet is just as important as what you are meeting about

    • How will they hear if we are not intentional about the space
    • First impression for families
      • You may only get one chance with a parent. Make your space so it looks like you knew they were coming.
    • You don’t have an excuse for not being intentional with what you have
    • Having a clean space is vital.
    • It is an act of worship to have a clean space (Think tabernacle in OT)
    • Things your environment should help communicate
      • Signage (from street to seat)
      • Safety
      • Specific age (how do we say this space is for you)
      • Broken window (kids will break more and trash it) if it is pristine they will be less likely to break and dirty it up.
    • Portable is key if the space is not yours
      • You can’t just leave your stuff if it is a multi-purpose room
    • Sometimes make the space smaller (30 kids in a 300 person room is daunting). Curtains or defined spaces within the environment. Have a goal to fill it.
    • Celebrate the things that you want repeated
      • Camp, baptisms, volunteers. Use the walls, floor, bathroom to tell a story
    • You are trying to creature culture and environment is a lot of that.
      • Your environment should drive the mission home not make people want to drive home
    • Talk to parents, students, and student leaders about what they think of the space

The Upside of NO, This history of the podcast! How hearing NO to an idea set me on the path to start controlled chaos!

Summer camp, time off policy, or lack of policy for post camp for staff.  Different from church to church, we talk about what its like in our churches.

Volunteers, specifically at camp.  They are the BEST... most of them either take vacation time to be at camp, then they go right back to work.  But we touch on the expectaions we put on volunteers overall.

Health, how do we create health for our leaders with everyting we ask them to do.

Be mindful of the sacrifice your leaders make for you!

Leaving well (leaving a good taste in everyones mouth)

As you leave you will be remembered by your last month… regardless of how long you have been there, how great you were or how terrible you were.. your last month will say how you are remembered… .

7 things I would do when leaving somewhere

1. Tell your boss first.
2. Don’t go out burning bridges.
3. Don’t spend the next persons money.
4. Get all the passwords and log ins, subscriptions all together for the next person.
5. Write thank you notes, a lot of them, and meet with people.
6. Don’t take stuff. Leave things.
7. Encouragement and support is key for leaders and parents.

 

Starting somewhere new. (Cooking with Crisco)

You cant start at the new place where you left off at the old place.

7 things I would do when starting some where new.

  1. Who do I need to meet with?
  1. How we do currently communicate with leaders and parents?
  1. What do we do when a new kid shows up?
  1. What metrics do we track and how do we track it?
  1. Who are the volunteers?
  1. What is currently on the calendar? 
  1. What supplies and subscriptions do we have?

 

Extra thoughts.

-Take a week or 2 off in between if you can.

-Think about what you post at your new place.

-Work until your last day!
