THIS MONTH'S TOPIC: BUILDING TRUST WITH THE NEXT GENERATION
Building relationships is one of the most important things in student ministry.  For a special few, this elusive skill comes naturally.  But for the rest of us, the struggle is REAL.  (Or am I the only one who has attempted a deep conversation with a middle-schooler, only to have it die a long awkward death?)
How can we as leaders connect with our students so we can be in a place to speak the gospel into their lives?

This month Pastor Sam is going to share his insights from his years of youth ministry experience, on how he has been able to connect with an ever changing generation of young people.

Evening Agenda:
7:00pm Dinner & Networking
7:30pm Praise
7:40pm Keynote
8:00pm Breakout discussion
8:30pm Group prayer

CTL Leadership Development Seminar October 22nd, 2016

Where: Joshua Vision Center at KCPC : 2534 GA-120, Duluth, GA 30097
When: 12:30pm to 3:00pm on October 22nd (Saturday)
Who: Anyone over 18 and interested in leadership development
Price: FREE!!!... because no food is provided
Why: why not? It's free!! 

This is an amazing opportunity for us to really get a better understanding of and learn how to utilize our unique God given personality traits. The speakers for the seminar are professional leadership development consultants who've graciously offered us their talents to help the church leaders of Atlanta unlock their full leadership potential.  

A seminar of this caliber does not come around very often (especially for free!), so please come join us and bring as many people as you think would benefit from this seminar!

About the Speakers: Andy Eun & Abe Gin

Andy and Abe are both full-time consultants with GiANT Worldwide, a leadership development consultancy. GiANT has worked with many multi-million dollar companies such as Ford and Southern Company and is being recognized as a leading expert in the Leadership Development world.

Andy and Abe also operate under a non-profit arm called CTL (Christian Transformation Leadership), where they are able to focus not only on personal and organizational development but also the spiritual quotient (SQ) aspect as well. They have worked with churches, non-profits, and missions organizations both domestic and abroad to help bring greater breakthrough and alignment to individuals, teams, and organizations. 

About the Seminar:

The power of self awareness is life-changing. When we understand God's original design for our lives, it is deeply transformative. We will explore and understand the Biblical foundations of God's original design for our lives. As we begin to really understand who we are as God's unique workmanship, we gain a greater sense of clarity on life. A powerful life is not incidental but rather it is intentional. 

Many people can identify their Meyers Briggs 4 letter type, however very few understand the depths how their unique cognitive functions effects every part of their life. In this deep dive experience, you will gain greater insight and practical tools regarding who you are and how you function. You will gain greater clarity on how you interact with the world and what it looks like to be on the other side of you.

You will walk away with:

- A clear identification of your MBTI personality type
- An in depth understanding of your unique cognitive functions and how they work together
- Personal insight into the role your nature plays in your relationship with God
- What is your unique breakthrough cycle?
- Practical tools in how to manage and overcome moderate and extreme stress
- How to practically make your leadership grow
- Greater self awareness from a Kingdom perspective

Haven: Easter and Good Friday Ideas and Resources

Haven: Easter and Good Friday Ideas and Resources

Good Friday and Easter are coming up! Here are some ideas and resources that were shared during Haven!  We hope this will spark some ideas for your Easter/Good Friday services!

Haven Worship Set List:

Here is the song list and scripture readings from our worship time: EASTER WORSHIP SET  

Good Friday Service Ideas:

Good Friday at Han Vision

Good Friday at Han Vision

USE CANDLES
-(Han Vision) Each person is given an unlit candle and a handout as they enter. They walk over to a large cross on the ground with one lit candle on it which they lite their candle with. Then they write a prayer near their candle and then find their seat for service (leaving their candle near the cross). At the end of the service they blow out their candle as they leave. (download handout instructions print double sided and cut in half)

-(Bethany Presbyterian) Give each person a candle as they walk in and light it representing Jesus the light of the world. Place that candle on the table in the middle of the room.  After the service and a personal time of prayer have each person blow out their candle as they leave representing the extinguishing of Jesus life.  The service ends in complete stillness and darkness.

FOOT WASHING
-Have a food washing incorporated into the service Good Friday Service

COMMUNION
-Open or close the service with a time of  communion 

SENSORY
-pass around physical elements like large nails, thorns  etc. During a reading of the scripture.
-write down your sins and nail to a wooden cross (a classic)

 

OUTREACH
-Do outreach on Good Friday making food for the homeless.
-Do evangelism and prayer. KCPC youth group is going to the mall on Good Friday to pray for people and share the gospel and then gather back at church and worship and give testimonies.

REFLECTION STATIONS
-Vision church YG is doing 17 stations walking through the life of Jesus from birth to death.
-or the traditional 14 STATIONS OF THE CROSS

DON’T HAVE A SERVICE?
-If your church doesn’t have it’s own service just go to Passion City Church’s Good Friday Concert. We have heard good things about it.
 

Easter Sunday Service Ideas:

Cupcakes for Easter 

Cupcakes for Easter 

CUPCAKES! 
-After having communion on Good Friday Service to remember Jesus’ death. End your Easter Service with the passing out of cupcakes to celebrate NEW LIFE remembering the resurrection.  (Because in our culture we celebrate new life with birthday cake.)

4 Pointes Testimony Video

4 Pointes Testimony Video

VIDEO TESTIMONIES
-During their Easter service, 4Pointes Church shows follow-up video testimonies of people who have gotten baptized through out the last year.

DARKNESS, SILENCE, LIGHT
-Start your Easter Service, dark lights off, Good Friday songs and bible verses. Then have 3 minutes solid minutes of silence representing the 3 days in the tomb, break the silence with swelling music, reading Easter bible verses and lights being turned on and switch gears into Easter Songs!  

Stone Mountain Sunrise Service

Stone Mountain Sunrise Service

SUNRISE SERVICE
-Add an Easter sunrise service. If you have a joint KM-EM service for Easter adding a Sunrise service will be an opportunity to have your ‘own’ (EM) Easter Service. Worshiping as the sun rises is a beautiful way to remember what it must’ve been like for those who saw the empty tomb first. (Often, a sunrise service is a “stripped down” version of the service, so there’s no need to worry on many technical elements.)

-Or take your group to Stone Mountain's Sunrise Service a non-denominational Easter service at the top of the Mountain. It's free. Make sure to bring warm clothes and flashlights for the hike up.

-Bethany Presbyterian has a joint Easter dawn service with three churches in their area. Maybe you can do a sunrise service with a few churches around your area.


Discussion Questions:

After sharing some service ideas we had a few discussion questions to finish off the night.  

What do you want people walking away from Good Friday thinking?

-A feeling of real sadness and loss at the death of Jesus Christ. 
-To understand the cost and weight of the sacrifice of Christ
-Walk away with a real need for hope
-To realize the depth and seriousness of their sin and our need for forgiveness
-To walk away loving Jesus more

What About Easter Service?

-Absolute Hope in Christ.
-Feeling victorious in Jesus.
-Joy and celebration at the resurrection.
-Feel a sense of a new beginning, new life, starting over!
-Understanding why the resurrection is good news for them and for the world.  

How are you getting your congregation ready for Easter?

-Challenging your church to fast (pray) or sign up for a fasting (prayer) chain during passion week.
-Have the congregation meditate/memorize on the upcoming sermon passage the week before.
-Have the whole church jointly handwrite the bible or New Testament (or a Gospel). Depending on the size of your group.
-40 days of QT with youth group. Giving out 40 days of QT material packets.

HAVEN: Welcome to 2016

What better way was there to ring in this new year and new season of Servants Network than with fellow servant leaders and rest? We were able to worship back at brandNEW (our now permanent location of Haven!) on Monday, February 1, with a session of Spirit-filled worship led by our brothers David Kim and Jonathan Choi, a quick recap of the vision of Servants Network by our brother Joe Song, sharing/intercessory prayer for each individual servant, and some good old fellowship.
