Who is Lead THE Cause for?
How will it help my students?
What does the small group training look like?
Core 101 will feature the following topics:
Ask, Admire, Admit
The key to effectively sharing your faith is by having a conversation, not giving a presentation. People are more open to discussing their spiritual views when they know that you genuinely care about them and want to know what they believe and why. This session goes over our proven approach that allows you to start a spiritual conversation in non-offensive, genuine way.
The Gospel is an overview of the entire story of the Bible. In this session you will drill down into each letter of our GOSPEL acrostic so that you have a thorough understanding of what the good news is and so that you can remember it in the midst of your conversation. A great tool for you that will increase your confidence in being able to really share Christ and God’s plan with your friends, family, teammates and neighbors.
The point of sharing the gospel is for the person to understand what God has done for them and that He desires a relationship with them. Bringing them to a point where they understand that they need to decide what they are going to do about Jesus is a critical component of sharing the gospel, but many of us have a hard time when it comes to bringing them to a decision. Now What? Helps students with this crucial skill and provides approaches that will enable them to give the listener a chance to respond to God’s love.
Will there be any special training for returning students?
Core 201 – 2nd year attendees
This track is for returning students who are recommended for the next level of training by their youth leader. A bit more intense than Core 101, students are pushed in the areas of personal renewal, apologetics and disciple-making.
Core 301 – 3rd year attendees OR 2nd year attendees in their senior year
Students in Core 301 will receive deeper training on the bigger picture of advancing the gospel: disciple multiplication. They’ll learn to implement the 7 Values of a Gospel Advancing Ministry as student leaders in their youth groups and to be Gospel Advancing Leaders for the rest of their lives.
