Over the next week, I hope to focus several posts on ways to successfully finish out this portion of the school year, before all the students head to Winter Break and ultimately into their next semester / quarter.
This theme presupposes something that I’m not sure all of us believe: The last days can be used strategically in college ministry, just like the first days of the school year.
So without adding any sort of “fluff” to today’s post, I want to leave a question to ponder on this first school day after Thanksgiving:
How well have you strategized the last days of your semester?
If this is something you haven’t thought through, I urge you to consider it. Or if you’re simply “running great college ministry plays” that have worked before, consider auditing those ideas to make sure it’s your best strategy this time around. What goals do you have in mind for these two weeks? What do you want students to depart knowing, feeling, and/or doing? How are you going to get them there?
I believe how we spend the last two weeks of a semester or quarter can make a lot of difference in students’ lives.
Enjoy the pondering. If I can help, let me know.
And stay tuned for some thoughts on this lil’ topic.
