Student Ministry – Meeting Recap

Parents,

Thank you all for giving me 30 minutes of your Sunday afternoon. I loved getting to laugh together and share my passion for our students and this ministry!

Here is a quick recap of what was shared yesterday during our time together:

  • Ron and Becky Brandenburger beat Jeff and Danette Venegoni in an intense game of “Hearing Things” and walked away with $15 to Starbucks!
  • We discussed our Vision for Springs Student Ministry and our desire for students to find life to the FULL in Jesus Christ. We also read together with our main Scripture references for our ministry in 1 Thess 2:8 and Hebrews 13:7. I pray that these verses exemplify everything we do!
  • We broke down our small group structure (See attachment) and why we do it. The plan is for leaders to move up with their group until those students graduate high school! We believe the local Church should be the primary source of discipleship in students’ lives. That starts with small groups and having highly-invested, faithful leaders to lead them.
  • Communication- The Springs is creating a monthly newsletter to ALL members and the Student Ministry will use this to give you all you need to know on what we’re studying, events coming up, and stories of life change within the group (leaders included). I am pumped for this!! Please hit your knees in prayer for this and that the Lord would help us steward this exciting resource well.
  • 2019 Events- We talked through all of the exciting events we have planned/thinking through for 2019. These include Mission NB, Fall Retreat, and many more! More details on events will be sent out accordingly.
  • We had some great questions from the parents and those included: “Will leaders move up with the students in their small group as they move on to the next grade?” The answer is YES! With our current number of students in specific grades, it will make it interesting on how this will happen. But we are praying and thinking through the best possible solution. Another great question was “How do we get to know our child’s small group leaders and how do we best partner with them?” The simple answer is to invite them over for dinner! Invite them to sit with y’all at sporting or school events, and so on. SG leaders are here to come alongside you and learn how to best love, care, and encourage your students. We cannot FIX your kids, but Springs Student Ministry promises to love them and spur them on towards an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ.

Again, thank you so much for letting me have thirty minutes of your Sunday. I pray that you all left encouraged and with a clear understanding of where we are as a ministry and where we’re praying to be. New families are coming to the Springs every Sunday. I pray that the Springs loves and knows students and their families in Comal County better than we ever have in 2019. And most of all, that these students find that ABUNDANT life is found in a relationship with our King.
