Jr. High Loves Jackson Review

Filed under: jr. high ministry,Junior High Ministry,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 12:44 pm

A few thoughts from serving w/ Jr. High students this past week:

  • Variety is good.  Our teens worked w/ children, rec games & some landscape work.  Too much of 1 thing isn’t a good thing w/ junior high.
  • They really enjoy unscheduled time.  We’d stop working around 4:00 each afternoon.  Leave for supper around 5:30.  We’d eat, do a Bible study & share time.  Other than that the nights were unscheduled.  They loved the freedom to just be teens.
  • Jr. High students can do more if we’ll just empower them.
  • I really liked having our students serve locally.  I think it helps them learn that service isn’t an event, but a lifestyle.
  • Serving locally in many ways is more taxing on your leadership.  It’s nice to be close to home in some ways, but when you are away you escape the day to day work responsibilities.

If you are looking for a place to partner with for a missions/ministry event you should check out Mission First.  Best experience I’ve ever had working w/ a missions organization.
