New Years

New Years

It’s a new year; a fresh start. Some people use the New Year to make resolutions and try and better themselves, some use it to set goals on things they want to accomplish for the year, and some use it to say they are going to do things that they said they would do last year. I believe that the New Year can be a really key holiday for Campus Missionaries. It gives us a chance to set up new goals for our schools and a chance to look back on what worked and what didn’t work in our evangelism from the previous year. That is what I would like to encourage you guys to do this year in 2015. Use this year to achieve things way above anything you have done in previous years. Set goals for yourself: personal goals, goals for your school, goals for your education, etc. Take a look at how many students you saw come to Christ this past year. Set a goal to double or even triple those numbers. You can set goals with your bible club! See how many new people you can get to each bible club meeting! Try and bring 1 or 2 new people each week. Try and plan more outreaches, maybe do 1 or 2 outreaches each month. Brainstorm with your bible club and ask God what He wants you to do this year. For some of you, it will be your last year in high school, so make it count! Maybe you can make it your goal to show God’s love to at least 1 person every single day. Maybe you make a new friend every week and share the Gospel with them.

Take a look back at this past year. What worked when it came to telling students about the Gospel? What was the most successful approach? What was the least successful approach? How can you improve? Discuss these questions with your bible club and come up with the most ideal ways. Get creative and think of new approaches. Have everyone in your bible club write down 2 or 3 goals they have for their school this year and help each other achieve those goals! Maybe you don’t have a bible club yet in your school; make it your goal to have a functioning bible club in your school so that others have an opportunity to attend it. Maybe your bible club is dying out or not enough people go; take charge of it and make necessary changes to see it thrive like never before. God has great plans for all of you people, so tune in and see what it is that He wants you to do.
