What? Josh Griffin Didn't Already Blog About This?!?!

Our leadership team has been asked by Pastor Rick to focus a great portion of our ministry energy this year in two key areas: "Connecting" and "Equipping". Josh Griffin, our high school pastor and blogger extraordinaire, and I have spent some time brainstorming creative new ways to connect students to each other and our ministry and to equip parents, students and leaders. Our goal was not to simply create new programs, but larger strategies that will stay in place as various programs come and go.

I'm almost certain Josh will post about this stuff in greater detail, but I thought I would steal some of his thunder and beat him to the punch! Of the eight or nine ideas we came up with, here are my three favorite:

- An Online "Campus" For Students: Our church has four physical campuses, but we want to create an online "campus" for students who have to miss a weekend due to travel, blended families, etc. Our hope is that students will be able to tune into a live feed of our JH and HS programs complete with an adult volunteer "pastor" to interact with. Stay tuned.

- Parent Campus Connections: Certainly some of you are already doing this and can give us some input. Our hope is to get parents of "Same grade/Same school" to form little prayer/support/school action/etc. groups.

- The Starting Five: We want to strategically partner-up brand new volunteers with a veteran volunteer for the first 5 weeks in our ministry.

There's much more to share, and I'm sure Josh will. But he will do so knowing I am the superior blog updater guy.

These are great ideas Kurt. I was just chatting with some LifeChurch people last Saturday about the need for that very thing for junior high and high school students. Excited to see what you guys come up with.

I love these ideas. The starting 5 is quick and easy to implement with no resources. The other two will take a little more work.

Make every attempt to settle your payday advance promptly. Should you can't pay it back, the loaning business might force you to roll-over the borrowed funds into a fresh one. This a different one accrues its unique set of service fees and finance fees, so officially you are paying out these fees twice for the similar dollars! This may be a significant strain on the banking account, so intend to pay for the financial loan away immediately. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Cort5y656e[/url]

Light up is among the most awful asthma attack aggravators. It goes without the need of proclaiming that asthma attack affected individuals should not light up, however, many concern by those they accept is named for, way too. A home that includes an asthma victim needs to be a light up-free one. People who smoke inside the house has to be ready to maintain the inside oxygen nice and clean out from health-related basic need. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Foli342334o[/url]
