If youth leaders are not equipping their youth in this area – or do not know how, now they do! God-talk provides youth and youth leaders with 5 outreach-equipping videos per year, with discussion guides. Ongoing equipping and mobilising of young people is thus enabled.
Youth leaders will be provided with 12 leadership-training video-tutorials (with discussion guides) on how to (i) build an outreaching culture, and (ii) how to attract crowds and facilitate some great outreaching programs. Youth leadership teams can watch these to learn together. When the person leading the youth ministry chances (which happens every 2 years on average) the church’s pastor can ask the new youth leader to look at these videos – enabling the new youth leader to know what their God-given mission is, and how they might lead their group in it.
A decreasing number of secondary schools have Christian groups in them, and while there are occasionally regional efforts to connect school groups together, there is nothing national (as measured by having groups in 8 or more provinces) at this point in time. The hope is therefore to create 10 leadership-training video-tutorials on how to run an effective groups in their secondary school (while also, where needed, providing a ‘mandate’ for these groups that teachers and Principals might respect), to help believing students to represent Christ well to others in their school. (The hope would then be to provide monthly testimonial videos via FB to encourage and resource groups with ideas). (Note: Some great resources already exist, like 101 ideas for school groups from ‘New Generation’ here)
