Ministry can be a very lonely place. Many times we feel we are left on an island by ourselves to coral all these junior high students and try to teach them something. Some of us get paid to do this and others of us volunteer to do it. Either way, we all need help.
Junior high students need to be loved and need to be heard. They need to learn at their own level and pace. They need a place they can feel safe. They need a lot of stuff, and they expect you to give them what they need.
We here at JuniorHighMinistry.org would like to help you out a little bit. We love that we have a place where communication can happen about what life is like in junior high ministry. Our blog is here to provide not only relevant truths about working with junior high students, but we would also like it to be a place where you could share your story in the comments. So, go ahead and leave us a comment.
We are also expanding in another area. This week we are making some curriculum available for purchase. We have brought together some great writers who work specifically with junior high students. Many others offer junior high curriculum that is made for high school students and can be adapted to junior high. From experience, I can tell you that this doesn’t always work out. We want to provide you with material that is totally age specific.
Each lesson includes a fun opening game, complete teaching, small group discussion questions, powerpoint slides and more. You can completely customize the lessons to fit your particular group and setting.
The first series we are releasing this week is called “encounter”, so check it out. Hopefully it will make you feel that you are not alone in ministry.
