AFLC Youth Ministries exists to win teens to Christ, to build them up by God's Word and God's love, to equip them to live and to share their faith, resulting in the multiplying of maturing teen disciples of Jesus.
To encourage youth leaders and caring adults in this pursuit, each month AFLC Youth Ministries features three ideas:
- * Moment of the month features our fun youth ministry finds, you will see everything from movie trailers to magazine ads to YouTube videos.
- * Link of the Month features a recommended youth ministry site.
- * Taste of the Month features a taste of training or something we think would be worth you to nibble on for sharing Jesus with this generation of youth.
Check em’ out and enjoy!
Moment of the Month
National Day of Prayer
The National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 4. The theme for 2017 is “For Your GREAT Name’s Sake” and the website offers promotional resources including video components. There is a tool for searching if an event is set for your community or area.
Link of the Month
Campus Ministry Link
Have you ever wished there existed a better tie between your local congregation and college campus ministries across the country? I know I certainly have. Many congregations seek to establish a bridge with graduating seniors to Christian organizations like Cru, FCA, and IVCF. At the same time, Christian organizations have struggled to identify Christian young adults that step onto the college campus.
Campus Ministry Link is pursuing this gap. Their website is launching a new initiative to bring that connection, which includes communication tools for youth leaders and pastors with specific Christian organizations on college campuses. Who do you know that needs to know this link exists?
Taste of the Month
SURF Your Schedule
During April, I was asked to share “SURF Your Schedule” with the Minnesota Gathering of the youth leader network LEAD222. If you have had me as an instructor at AFLBS or AFLTS, you may recall this training component. It was helpful for me to review for my own soul and my own schedule. I offer the link to the Youth Specialties inclusion of it in their YS Blog from one year ago with the prayer that nurtures you in this post-Easter season for rest and renewal.
