The Most Important Thing?

There can be lots of different nominations for the most valuable thing in a strong College Ministry. After my return to the ministry at Arkansas State, at this point I would say it is strong student leadership

I have seen our student leaders reach out in love to new students. I have seen them be pro-active in thinking of things they need to do that had not even entered my head.

So, how do you develop and encourage strong student leadership?

1. Always express appreciation for their hard work and's easy to take them for granted.

2. Give them opportunity to express their thoughts and ideas.

3. After an event or project help them to evaluate and learn from it.

4. look for ways to connect them to areas where their passions lie.

5. Always, always model hard work and responsibility!

6. Remember, there is a difference in the way they are doing it being wrong....and just not the way you would do it.
