CBSM 2011 SMT’s (Student Ministry Teams)

Every fall and spring we reset our SMTs by allowing our teens to pick new ones. We want to give every student an opportunity to use their spiritual gifts, serve Jesus, serve the church, and serve the community by putting them on an SMT that is perfect for them. This year, we have 28 SMT’s total for our high schoolers and middle schoolers. I also go over what spiritual gifts are, how to discover which gifts God has given you, and how to use your giftedness for Jesus’ glory in His church. So here are the SMT breakdowns and the quick lesson on spiritual giftedness.

CBSM Student Ministry Teams (SMTs) Fall 2010

Here is a list of all of our Student Ministry Teams, when they meet, what they do, and who their leaders are. Our SMTs are a vital part of our ministry…as we seek to be a ministry and not just a service. So many teenagers today are bored to death or preoccupied with so many things that just don’t eternally matter for the glory of Jesus. So we encourage ALL of our students to serve Jesus through their church by using their spiritual gifts on one of our SMTS. Here’s the list.

As we are continuing our SMT’s (Student Ministy Teams) on Sunday nights, our church is moving to this model as well.  So our whole church is using Sunday evenings as opportunities to serve within the church and to serve the community for Christ.  It’s pretty awesome.

This mp3 is from this past Sunday night where I gave our student ministry a crash-course in understanding what spiritual gifts are, how they figure out their spirtiual giftendness, and how to use them most effectively.  Continue reading
