Student Ministry Team
The Purpose of the Reach Students Central District Team is:
“To assist Central District Evangelical Free Churches as they seek to build effective disciple making ministries through training, encouragement and event programming.”
1 Thessalonians 2:8 says “We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives, as well.” I have been a part of this district for just over 20 years and I have seen this verse lived out in so many ways. Our RSCD network is a group of men and women who passionately love the Lord and that love flows into people. The gospel is shared and lives are shared. The youth pastors and youth leaders in our district invest incredible amounts of time living and sharing the gospel with students and their families. I distinctly remember seeing this at Winter Blast 2022, our Jr. High retreat for the district. I was filled with joy watching youth pastors and volunteer youth leaders enjoying time together with their students and seeing them participate in gospel conversations. I witnessed a volunteer leader on Sunday morning desperately trying to interact with the Word with these students and seemingly not getting much in return. I mean, it was Sunday morning after a crazy weekend after all 😊. A bit later when I saw her, I made sure to tell her thanks for investment into young lives and her investment mattered, even if she didn’t feel like it was that morning. She did it because she loved those jr highers. I saw it again just a few weeks ago at Impact, our district high school retreat. I see it all the time when our network gathers together for prayer, sharpening and connection together. God is at work in the student ministries of our district!
We are so incredibly grateful for the support of our district superintendent, district board and district churches as we seek to make disciples. It is our prayer that we would be a life-giving asset within our district. Would you please partner with our student ministries in prayer in 2023 that the Lord would be at work in young lives, all for His glory?
RSCD exists to assist Central District E Free churches as they seek to build effective disciple making ministries through training, encouragement and event programming. May we all continue to partner together to be disciples who make disciples who make disciples…….
