Things I learned from Kurt Johnston, Student Pastor at Saddleback

This week I had the opportunity to hear Kurt Johnston,  speak at Baptist Bible College. Here are some take aways:

Student Ministry is relational at it’s core. Developing relationships with students must be the motivation behind programs and events.

Don’t do everything for the students. Train them to how to study the Bible, pray, etc.

The sky is not falling! In student ministry world you are always told that students are leaving the church because we are doing it all wrong but Kurt encouraged us to continue following Jesus, intersecting our lives with students and Jesus will take care of the results.
