Will You Be the ONE?

We Can Do This!

We are now almost two weeks past the “big event at U.S. Bank Stadium. Together, youth pastors, youth workers, and youth ministries can all build on the momentum of #PulseTwinCities. Those of us committed to reaching and mentoring the next generation need to “Carpe Diem” this historic opportunity.

Memorial Day for this year is history and summer has started. We are in the middle of the graduation parties season and getting ready for our summer activities: camps, conferences, and mission trips.

You are probably not thinking a lot about your fall strategy, networking with with other youth workers in your community, SYATP, Dare2Share Live, Campus Impact Training or the potential of My Stories or Youth Alive outreach to to schools.

Just think about the impact we could have with 750 churches, youth pastors, youth ministry leadership teams, students, and people in these churches prayer on the 180 Twin Cities High Schools, plus middle and junior high schools in the Greater Twin Cities!

Why does any of this even matter? Because We Care about the Next Generation!

What is your plan to “Seize the Moment” in your church and youth ministry to reach and mentor the next generation?

  • What can you do in your church and youth ministry to build on the momentum of the “Big Event”?
  • How can you have informal and intentional conversations with students on mission trips, at camps, conferences, or just hanging out about living on mission and uniting with other Christian students at their school this fall?
  • How can you continue to challenge and engage people (parents, grandparents, school staffers, concerned adults) in your church to pray for, pour into students, and provided needed resources for the ministry?
  • How can you continue to keep you pastor or senior leadership focused on the mission to reach and mentor the next generation?
