Greetings High School Ministry Families;
Tell, Show, Do is one of the most popular training models being used today in academic settings across the world. It is a simple formula that explains the process, demonstrates it to students, and then has students perform the process. By doing this, you have created successful environment where a trainee now understands what outcome they are aiming for.
This model isn’t new. Jesus did exactly this with his disciples. He told them what he was doing and why, then he showed them the example of how to point people to Him, and then ultimately he released them to go and do the work (Matthew 28:16).
Our upcoming mission trip in June is a great model of being able to DO. And by doing, we have been able to feel the positive impact in our lives as written about by David Edgren, who attended the trip last year. This is what he wrote in an essay for Pierce College:
“As part of my philosophy, I believe that God made us to serve wholeheartedly. This gives us purpose and a reason to dedicate time and effort to others, and also explains the satisfaction I get from service. I have noticed this profoundly through the incredible mission trip I attended last summer that changed me in so many ways. After my experiences volunteering, I have made it a goal to serve wherever and whenever I can because I have tasted the incredible benefits.”
So what are we doing?
This year our student ministries are going to continue partnering with YouthWorks (www.youthworks.com) to serve the Blackfeet Indian Nation in the Northwest Corner of Montana. We will be doing cleaning projects.
Our time is set for June 23-July 1, 2018 and the cost for your son/daughter to attend is $350. This will cover the meals, housing, and transportation for the week. There will be a BBQ fundraiser on June 10, 2018 for the church and your services will be required at that time.
