Summer is always an interesting time in ministry isn’t it? I was thinking the other day about how a lot of places get really chill during the summer months. For me it might be the opposite. But the thing that is definitely different is the amount of opportunities that we have to connect with students and their friends during the summer.
Talking with a mentor the other day, he was explaining that churches generally go crazy with their events during the summer. Trying to do everything in 3 months or they do nothing. They shut down services and do very little programming.
Interesting that we have a tough time finding that balance isn’t it? Also interesting that we probably talk with our people about that balance a lot.
Through all the things going on in the summer for you, I’d like to share a few things that I make a priority in the summer.
