Is Student Ministry for Me?
Students do not connect to programs or events, they connect with people. The best way to change a student’s life is through relationship, especially a relationship with an adult who can meet them on their level. Below we’ve addressed some reservations people commonly have with student ministry volunteering.
I’m Too Old- Our volunteers range from age 19-80+ (that’s right 80+) Age is mindset anyway!
I don’t know all the answers- You don’t have to have all the answers, actually its better if you don’t! Students are looking for authentic relationship and being able to say “I don’t know” shows them that you are just like them, trying to figure out Christ call for our lives.
I’m not a perfect Christian- Great! Neither are we!
I just don’t have the time- There are volunteer opportunities that require anywhere from a week to 15 minutes.
I just don’t have anything in common with students- We have a broad range of kids that are into all sorts of things, some of the things you are into! Plus you were a teenager once too!
I don’t know where to start- You are taking the first steps right now!
WHAT STUDENTS NEED
Student Ministry is not the easiest ministry in the church and it’s normal and okay for you to feel inadequate about your skills. Your confidence will grow the more you’re around students and the more you see how God can use inadequate people (like us) to do great things. Here’s the truth about what students need…
STUDENTS NEED LEADERS WHO WILL
Love Christ and show his love through their lives
Be interested in them
Pray for them
Go with the flow
Share Christ’s love through personal experience
Be consistent with attendance
