Welcome to Tip #2. I hope Tip #1 last week was a fresh reminder of God’s love for you and HIS desire to use you to redeem His creation! If you haven’t seen Tip 1, go back in the blog and check that one out first. Today we continue our quest to help prepare your student ministry for after the shelter at home order is lifted.
In today’s tip, we look at the best thing you have going for you: students! What if you and your church started seeing your students in a slightly different way? Don Miller (StoryBrand.com) says there are 4 kinds of people in every story: Villains, Victims, Heroes and Guides. So what does this have to do with student ministry? Watch the video to find out:
- See students as __________________ to school.
- Identify students who are already ___________ their faith (the heroes! aka Luke Skywalker).
- Equip the church to _____________ for the missionaries (the guides – but you are their master Yoda!).
*** People have a __________ for what they pray for.
Once you watch the video, download the homework sheet (it has the fill in words for these blanks) and take some time to list the hero’s in your student ministry (the students). Be ready for Tip 3 where we will give you a tool for your students to use to share their faith story.
