Monday is Coming: What do you Want Students to do About It?: Doug Fields

We can't just teach them what to believe on Sunday...we've got to challenge them to serve on Monday. 

We can't just teach them what to believe on Sunday...we've got to challenge them to serve on Monday.

We don't want them to graduate with beliefs. We want them to graduate as a minister. 

What if we changed the yardstick from sitting to serving?

We count people because we're too lazy to figure out how to measure effectiveness and health.

I can get easily distracted by my ministry ambitions instead of my ministry calling...which is fueled by insecurity.

What if we changed our language and painted a verbal picture of what kids could be?

What if in still of calling them graduates, we call them ministers?
What if instead of telling kids they are the future of the church, we tell them they are the church.
What if instead of saying see you next week and bring a friend, you help them to serve someone during the week.

What a kid does affects what a kid believes. - Reggie Joiner

You don't disciple kids from a stage. You disciple kids up close.

We can't just tell them what to believe in Sunday, we have to teach them how to serve on Monday.

What if we changed our emphasis from Eternal Life when you die...to Kingdom Life while you're alive?

Jesus didn't say lead Me. He said follow Me.

You are never more like Jesus than when you serve.
