If you are like me, you have a ton going on right about now. You are still recruiting for Christmas/Winter conferences, thinking about Christmas outreaches and wrapping up things here at the end of the semester. You probably are working on your end of the year ask, doing Christmas cards and shopping, and you probably have a few Christmas parties to attend. How do you keep it all straight?
Ben Rivera, Student LINC Consultant, sent out a reminder list for student leaders last week to help them remember the priority things. I thought it was you might find it helpful.
Most of you have two to three weeks left of classes and a week of finals. Your time is getting short but also extra busy.
** Christmas/Winter Conference **
Begin to finalize and encourage people to attend your regional Christmas conference, do some fund raising to help people go, and arrange rides before you leave for home in two to four weeks. Exchange email and cell phone numbers. Here is more.
** Summer Project Opportunities **
Summer project registrations are in full swing. Planning for your summer now, takes extra foresight. Want to potentially have the best summer of your life? Think about a summer project, but don’t wait too long.
** End Well **
Begin now to plan with your leadership team for your Spring semester. The time will catch up to you quickly. Here are some things to think about:
- Try to reserve the same room you met in this fall, for next Spring. This will give you some consistency.
- Reserve a place and the time (first week of classes) to do a campus wide survey. This is always a great start and helps you to meet new people.
- Print off posters and flyers to advertise your weekly meetings so everyone on campus knows where you meet.
- Plan a solid monthly evangelistic event each month. This helps you to keep the gospel message an emphasis each month.
- If you can, field test the “Essentials” Bible study series with your students this spring, that would be great.
- If you are graduating or transferring after this Spring semester, be sure to reproduce yourself into some one else’s life so the movement will continue when you’ve left.
