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?
