Discipling a few leads to reaching the many:
Jesus’s primary investment of time and teaching during His three-year public ministry was into his disciples. He built His ministry through them and He is our model today for how to build ministry and how to build people.
A group of teenagers (Campaigners!) who love Christ with passion, love one another in Christ, are taught the power of prayer for the lost and who deeply care that their non-believing friends know Him, is the best formula to start and grow an effective club. We start club when THEY are ready to come, invite and bring friends—when they are passionate about a club in their school.
These Campaigner kids (who will have their ups and downs just like the disciples) essentially become our “junior leaders,” our partners in ministry. They’re positioned to reach far more kids (under the guidance of the actual staff and volunteer leaders in the club) than we could ever reach without them—they OWN the club with us. It may take some extra time at the front end to establish their buy-in, but as our friends in Africa have taught us, “The slow way really is the fast way.”
The best leadership development tool for lifelong ministry is for them to own the Young Life ministry in their school under our Christ-like, nurturing, and strategic leadership. It is the best strategy for starting a new club and the best strategy to develop new, eager Young Life leaders once they graduate from high school.
