After the Orange Conference, I’ve been reading through a book that they made available there called, Make Believe.
It’s a good book about 5 principles that Student Pastors should begin believing to change the trajectory of their ministry.
I haven’t finished it but some of the things that are sticking out to me right now that might be helpful to you are below:
- Student ministry tenure < 4 years #yikes
- Strategy is so important… Where do you want your students to go? How do you expect them to get there?
- There is a gap between Children’s Pastors and Student Pastors (I’ve written about that here and here and here)
I’ll probably have a few posts on this book coming up as I look at how it specifically applies to my ministry at Brookwood.
Really good read. You can grab a copy at the Orange store.
