We value the youth of our church, and we are committed to building a sustainable youth ministry that is going to have a deep impact. Which is why we are in the process of re-imagining student ministry at our church. We have invited Ministry Architects to visit us on April 20-22. (Learn more about them at www.ministryarchitects.com.) Ministry Architects will spend the majority of their time listening to a variety of groups within the church through focused listening groups. We hope to see participation in those groups from a broad spectrum of parents, volunteers, youth and people who just love our youth. We want your insights, your frustrations and your dreams to be heard.
After spending 3 days in these listening groups (and taking copious notes), the Ministry Architects team will hunker down to write a report, sharing with us what they’ve heard about the youth programs – including assets, challenges, and how we compare to youth ministries around the country – and where it seems that God might be taking us next. On April 23 at 4pm in the Sanctuary the report will be presented to the congregation laying out specific recommendations and a blueprint for how to move forward. If you would like to be part of this process and have your voice heard, please contact us.
