Disciple Making in Student Ministry (Leader Training)

Disciple Making in Student Ministry.001

Here is my latest talk on Disciple Making. This talk came from a Leadership Training session with my own leaders on a Sunday morning. Here are a few thoughts from this training:

Disciple Making should be so simple that any disciple is able to make more disciples.

Jesus gave us a very simple but clear strategy to Make Disciples.

We must start a multiplication movement of Making Disciples because what the church has been doing for years is not working.

The WIN is student ministry should be Disciple Making Multiplication not attendance.

The Blog Formally Known As: Storyline.Framework

StorylineFramework.com is now YouthGroupTruth.com. We originally named this Blog of CBSM Storyline.Framework because our Wednesday worship services are called “Storyline” and our Sunday morning small groups are called “Framework”. After having several conversations with guys who know a lot more than me when it comes to the online world, I became convinced that storyline.framework meant nothing to anyone who was looking for resources that our blog offers. After a little personal research on google, I found that the most popular search words on youth ministry were “youth group”. And the purpose of our blog is to spread the TRUTH of the gospel of Jesus Christ. So therefore we came up with http://www.youthgrouptruth.com. Just that easy! But nothing has changed in our content. This blog is still designed to be a free resource and download center for youth pastors, teenagers, parents, and any other student who are searching for deep truths about their lives for Christ.

ELHS Graduate Baccalaureate Sermon and Service

I’m so thankful for the opportunity from ELHS to speak their Graduate Baccalaureate service this year. I was so impressed with the attention these graduates, their friends, their families, and their fans gave the Word of God being preached. Here’s what I believe God gave me to preach to a huge class of 2010 graduates. As they were going into the military, into college, and into the workforce…I wanted to make sure they knew their God (and Gospel through Jesus), their Gift (how God has gifted them to serve Him), and their Group (the kind of church God is calling them to be a part of).

CBSM Website Blurbs

Andrew is working on a brand spanking new website for CBSM and asked me to write up a few quick blurbs about our ministry.  Here’s what we came up with…

Storyline:  Our every Wednesday worship service is the time where we are coaching our students toward Christ.  Through epic videos, crazy games, awesome worship, and life-changing preaching: we are constantly pointing to Him.  So, if you’re looking for real worship that takes a real look at God’s Word, come check out some Storyline.

Framework: Our every Sunday morning small groups is the time where we are growing our students in community.  Through tight friendships and interesting discussions: our students are growing closer to Christ and each other.  So, if you’re looking for relationships that really grow together spiritually, come check out some Framework.

Ministry: Our every Sunday night student ministry teams is the time where we are commissioning our students to serve.  Through using their different God-given gifts, talents, and abilities to serve Christ, their church, and the community: our students making a huge difference by just doing what they are good at.  So, if you’re looking for real purpose that takes your life seriously, come check out some CBSM SMTs (Student Ministry Teams).

Bio: Chip has been the pastor of student ministries here at Capshaw Baptist Church since November 2007.  He grew up in Alabama (Tuscaloosa to be exact), so he’s pumped to be in an area where he gets the people and they get him.  He graduated from Baptist Bible College in PA with a youth ministry degree in 2001, and he graduated from Southern Seminary in KY with a masters of divinity degree in 2006.  Knowing Chip is really simple, he’s just super passionate about teaching teenagers the gospel and glory of Jesus Christ in all of life.

Taking It Up To Twenty Thous

I’m totally humbled that God would be using this blog.  For whatever reason, He really seems to be blessing it.  In just the last 2  1/2 months, there have been over 10,000 hits.  So I just wanted to take a quick minute to thank all yall for keeping up with it, checking out all the resources, praying for our ministry from it, and not posting nasty comments whenever you disagree with me.  I also wanted to take the opportunity to remind erbuddy of my purpose for this blog:

1.  Student Ministry Resources:  While being a student pastor, I have been shocked at the shortage of biblically deep, Christ-centered, and challenging applicable resources for students.  When all the public resources come out, the publishers seem to have to cater to so many denominations that the resources lose their edge, theological stance, and gospel focus.  So as our student ministry is fully committed to preaching all the Scriptures accurately, centered on Christ, grounded on the gospel, and applicable to real students lives…we put all of our resources on the blog in case other student pastors are interested in doing the same.  Also, I have to say, God has blessed us with a truly gifted media guy, Andrew England, who does all of our artwork, logos, handouts, slides, videos, etc.  You name it, he does it.  The dude totally makes me look cool…when I’m so not.  So with all that in mind, we put all our stuff on the blog to make a real difference for Christ in student minstries everywhere.  If you’re a youth pastor using some of our resources, I’d love to hear from you, hear what you’re using, and hear how God is using it in your ministry.
