This Sunday I watched as a now 8th grader who, let’s be real, used to be a big turd, invite a sixth grade student up on stage with her to sing for worship band. It was the most encouraging thing I’ve seen in a long time and it made my heart so happy to see!
And of course, it got me thinking: How can we encourage students to be more welcoming and inviting? That’s what we break down today!
Questions to consider:
Is your group insider focused, or outsider focused?
Do you have a place for a new student to fit in?
Are there places for current students to step up?
