This is the first post in a series that I’m writing for Orange Conference 2015 Blogger Week. You can check out all of the action here at the Orange Conference 2015 Blogger Week.
Usually when I go to a conference, I’m looking to get some answers to some questions that I have.
I’ve written a few posts on how to deal with the answers to those questions in the past. Here’s one on how to turn your notes into action.
I will tell you that this year, I’m really excited about asking some questions. So for this Orange Blogger’s Week I’m going to tell you the 5 questions that I’m most excited about answering at Orange.
Today I’ll give you the first one. It’s simply this:
What is the scorecard that you use to know if you are winning in high school ministry?
Ultimately I’m looking for some high school folks that look at their ministry and they know the fruit they are looking for.
Questions I’m asking to help me discover this:
- What’s the one thing you wish all your volunteers would help students do?
- Why do you do what you do every week?
- What’s one thing you hope students that are around for all 4 years of your ministry leave knowing and practicing?
- How does your service help them take a step further down that path?
- What is the most important thing you are doing as the leader to help your ministry achieve that goal and plan?
I’m looking for answers to this question because I’m looking to give incredible clarity to leaders this year on what we are shooting for in our High School Ministry. I’m looking for God’s direction on what we should be doing and where He wants us to go. I’m hoping finding answers to these questions will help me to clarify what God is already saying and provide some ideas for tangible steps to take in our ministry.
So that’s a big question that I’m looking to find some clarity on at Orange Conference 2015. If you are interested in finding this out alongside me come hang out with me at #oc15. Drop a comment below and let me know you’ll be there. I’d love to take you out to some coffee and pick your brain.
What question in High School ministry are you hoping to answer at this year’s Orange Conference?
