Today I decided to change things up a bit. As a new church plant (with no office), we tend to meet in the local Starbucks or in my home. Naturally, we try and meet in our “mission field”. So it makes sense to meet at the local Starbucks or even a restaurant in the area. But as a youth pastor, sometimes I forget about our mission field; the local High School or Jr. High.
Therefore, today I decided to do our Youth Staff Meeting at Lake Park High School, the local school near our church plant. After the meeting was over, I walked away with an incredible sense of God’s heart for every student attending that school this coming year. Before and after the meeting, we prayed over the school, the students, teachers and parents affiliated with Lake Park… For the next 3 weeks, we are going to hold our meetings at the other High Schools in The Ten.
What are your thoughts?
