Episode Takeaways:

  • Placing all of your effort and energy on your weekly worship service can leave you stressed, depressed, and less effective.
  • Focusing on developing and empowering student leaders to make disciples, helps relieve the pressure of "stage ministry", and makes us more effective at reaching students. 
  • The tasks that revolve around your worship services (setting up chairs, bulletins, social media, etc) generally take care of themselves when you have bought-in student disciple-makers. 
  • Emphasizing reaching freshmen and developing leaders keeps us from having to restart every time a highly involved class graduates.
