Show Notes and Quotes:
Teenagers are wanting student ministries to help them address the culture of their day through the lens of a biblical worldview.
Students can do great things. Greatness is using your influence to point people to Jesus.
Challenge students to dream big and then help them craft those dreams into reality.
Your role as a student pastor is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. What better way to challenge them to do something great for God than walk with them, help them accomplish those dreams, and awaken their eyes and hearts to being able to do accomplish something for the Kingdom.
