New Life Student Ministries

Our Students are in the midst of honestly knowing how to serve. These next few months we will be focusing ourselves and devoted to local missions. As we prepare, to see what mission trip locally God calls us too. We will be fundraising and visiting different local places. It's going to be a promising lesson, that will teach our teens the value of being Gods hand and feet. The biggest aspect that we will learn is how to be different and how to have a heart of a servant.
The world defines greatness in terms of power, possessions, prestige, and position. If you can demand service from others, you've arrived.  In our me-first culture, acting like a servant is not a popular concept. Jesus, however, measured greatness in terms of service, not status. God determines your greatness by how many people you serve, not how many people serve you.
This is so contrary to the world's idea of greatness that we have a hard time understanding it, much less practicing it. The disciples argued about who deserved the most prominent position, and 2,000 years later, people still jockey for position and prominence.
Thousands of books have been written on leadership, but few on servanthood. Everyone wants to lead; no one wants to be a servant. We would rather be generals than privates. Even Christians want to be "servant-leaders," not just plain servants. But to be like Jesus is to be a servant. That's what he called himself.
While knowing your shape is important for serving God, having the heart of a servant is even more important. Remember, God shaped you for service, not for self-centeredness. Without a servant's heart, you will be tempted to misuse your shape for personal gain. You will also be tempted to use it as an excuse to exempt yourself from meeting some needs.
God often tests our hearts by asking us to serve in ways we're not shaped. If you see a man fall into a ditch, God expects you to help him out, not say, "I don't have the gift of mercy or service."
We value the church and need to recognize our hearts and calling. These young teens, will be giving plenty of opportunity to serve. We have plans to visit Anberry, feed at the "D" St. Shelter, and help in our church. Please keep us in prayer as we mature in Christ. If, you find it your heart to help the ministry please contact me….
