GOSPEL is the first step in our CENTRIC Student Ministry Strategy.
The Gospel isn’t just something we preach in Student Ministry, but it must be the power of God that is unleashed to start His unstoppable movement through your student ministry.
I believe the Gospel is the central theme of all Scripture. Every passage, event, story, character, etc of Scripture is ultimately pointing us to the Gospel. But also, every passage, event, story, character, etc of Scripture is deepening our different perspectives of the Gospel. I believe this so strongly, that I’ve committed my life to preach through the whole Bible and all major Christian doctrines to my students so that they see the Gospel from all Scripture, all doctrine, and every perspective. Here is our 6-7 year plan through the Bible and all doctrine: All Bible and Doctrine Series Flow Plan Liberty Students
Not only should the Gospel permeate everything we say and do in student ministry, but also the Gospel should be simplified and clarified for our students. (1 Cor .15:3-4)
The Gospel is the POWER of God (Romans 1:16).
P – Person of Jesus (Jesus is both fully God and man)
W – Work of Jesus (Jesus’ life, death, burial, and resurrection)
R – Response to Jesus (We must repent of sin, believe on Him, and follow Him as Lord)
This has been the best tool to see students understand the Gospel in a simple, memorable, and reproducible way.
The Gospel is not only God’s plan of salvation, but the Gospel is also God’s plan of sanctification. We know that if we are believing the Gospel, then we will be living the Gospel.
Here are my personal sermons through a whole series on the GOSPEL called GamePlan:
