Training Our Leaders- In a Word

When you arrive tonight for ministry. Make it your goal to CARE about the needs of at least one teen. Ask they how they are doing. Comment on what they are wearing. Compliment them. Our students are already facing stress as interim grades are out. Even those who are doing great academically may be facing friendship stress or general stress that goes along with changes related to growing up. Care by loving them–even while nudging them to pay attention during worship–it’s all done with an attitude of “I get to point this student toward Jesus tonight”.

Thank you for coming each week, to serve, to love, to be a Christlike example,and to say with your life “we care”.
