With Winter Break approaching (whether yours is a couple of weeks or over a month), what time have you set aside to

  • “debrief” from this semester or quarter,
  • think about what God has shown you in the months since summer,
  • and work through exactly what the coming months should look like?

The reason I ask is that we often try to plan a whole school year in advance. But if you really think about it, haven’t some things changed since August? Haven’t some of your students grown? Haven’t new issues arisen? Haven’t you learned some things about the campus – ways to serve it? Ways to integrate with it? As a campus missionary, aren’t there some new topics, methods, events, and leaders that would make an impact in 2014… that you didn’t guess last summer?
