The goal of this break-out session is to help all of us be better prepared to teach God’s Word. Acts 17:11 commends the Bereans to us as people who received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily. And then verse 12 adds: therefore many of them believed. Our hope is that God would save many children, in our churches and in our homes. We want to examine how we can be a part of His great plan of salvation as we strive to be Bereans, growing and maturing in our practical ability to teach the Bible to young people. With the end result that those we teach will be Bereans themselves. Emphasis will be placed on reviewing tools that might be used to teach and equip this age group.

Great Commission Student Ministry

Do you want to promote the health and longevity of your church? Invest in your teenagers. While your ministry context will vary, non-negotiable biblical elements must be present. Your student ministry is called to evangelize (make disciples of Christ), edify (teach the Words of Christ) and equip (obey the words of Christ), students who are ultimately challenged to engage in the work of Christian ministry. We will take a practical look at how to approach these goals by discussing the importance of biblical preaching, discipleship, mentoring and apprenticeship, recreation, and working alongside families.
