One of the most important parts of any ministry is discipleship. But discipleship doesn't happen in a program or at a single event. Discipleship happens in small interactions within a relationship over a long period of time - a life lived together. That is why family discipleship is so important. But every student needs to know that there are other safe adults within the church that know them and are rooting for them. The programs in our student ministry are set up to introduce students to these kinds of relationships and hopefully foster general growth, but every person's journey towards Jesus is unique. That means that sometimes the program will hit you and other times it won't.
So these Connecting Conversations are intentionally designed to establish and grow relationships, to have fun together, to answer questions, for us to listen, to encourage, to empathize and to help identify tangible next steps for your student to take as they formulate their own identity and try to become more like Jesus.
