KTL is CBSM’s ministry that trains teens to teach and preach God’s Word in a Christ-centered, gospel-grounded, biblically-based, and life-changing kind of way. This year, it is just for our male high school students who feel called to full-time ministry, sense God possibly beginning to call them to full-time ministry, or have a desire to be teaching God’s Word in His church throughout their lives. This will be about a 3 month training ministry, and every student interested must fill out an application and be accepted. Here is the application and schedule for the next 3 months (below): KTL SPRING 2013 App and Schedule.doc
FTL (Follow The Leader) is a fall semester long leadership training group for our high school students.
FTL is for those high school students who are wanting to grow deeper and go farther in their spiritual leadership. CBSM defines leadership as “following Jesus and bringing others with you.” In this FTL semester, our students will be studying “Gospel-Centered Discipleship” by Jonathan Dodson. This is a great book to learn the importance of being a disciple of Jesus, the importance of being discipled by a spiritual mentor, and the importance of discipling others towards Jesus. The book will be provided for the students who want to be involved. Here is the application that every student must fill-out and turn in by Sunday, September 2nd. FTL FALL 2012 App.doc
“KTL” is CBSM’s opportunity to training teenagers on how to preach and teach the Word of God. For whatever crazy reason, God has blessed us with teenagers who are called into ministry, guys who are called to be pastors, girls who feel called to be missionaries, and both who feel called to simply teach God’s Word throughout their lives in different settings. This could be Bible studies, Sunday school classes, discipleship classes, or even family devotions at home when they become fathers and mothers. Whatever the calling, we want to equip them to know God’s Word, interpret God’s Word rightly, apply it correctly, and learn how to deliver it for people to hear clearly.
KTL will meet on Sunday nights from 8:00 – 9:30pm. Our main sessions over about 3 months will be how to see Christ clearly in each passage, how to see the gospel centered in each passage, how to discern the main truth from each passage, how to get the main application out of each passage, how to illustrate a lesson well, and how to introduce and conclude when you’re teaching and preaching.

Our CBSM KTL ministry trains students to preach and teach the Word in the church. It is for guys and girls who are either called to full-time ministry or who want to teach the Scriptures faithfully in opportunities that arise in their lives. We want to be a student ministry who prepares guys to pastors, missionaries, and teachers of God’s Word…and who prepares our girls who are called to be missionaries, women’s ministry leaders, children’s ministry leaders, and teachers of God’s Word in other opportunities as well. We take them through an understanding of how the Scriptures are Christ-centered, gospel-grounded, truthful, a meta-narrative, interconnected, illustrative, and life-changing. Our prerequisites to be a part of this ministry are to fill-out the application (attached above), able to make the scheduled dates, have a life of leadership, sense a call to full-time ministry, or have a desire to teach the Scriptures in your life.
I don’t know about you, but earlier on in my ministry I would have done just about anything to get my hands on a very practical series concerning small groups (or Sunday school) specifically for student ministry. I’m putting this resource out there for everyone in case it might be a help and a blessing to your youth ministry…wherever you are. These mp3s are the teaching sessions of our annual small group leaders retreat. Continue reading →
