High School Focus

This is a basic model to develop a focused effort to connect with your local schools.  It is intentional left incomplete as your church and schools will have different needs than others.  We encourage you to use, slice, dice, cut & paste, as you need.

Goal:

Providing the opportunity for young people and their families to find Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior by spreading the Gospel through an intentional planned focus on the local High Schools, by God’s Spirit and His people.

God has provided a set place where 5 days a week 2,000+/- students, teachers, admin and staff (representing 2,000+/- families) are located.  

Call First and ask permission -  

1.  Check the School website -  Names, Teachers, Staff, Clubs, Schedules.  (Is there a Christian Club?  Who leads it?)

2. Contact the Principal and ask permission to come on Campus  and prayer.

3.  Ask about their needs and concerns -  everything from Copy paper and pencils to racial tensions.  CONCERNS, avoid BUZZ words like PRAYER REQUEST -  Salt and Light, not scare them off.  (ANd you could even do a CHURCH Fund Raiser or Supply Raiser for that schools needs)

4.  Be polite and be honest, they can handle it.

5.  GREAT TARGET DATE -  Week before School begins, Administration and Teaching Staff are on campus for PRE School year meetings.

.  you can go stealth, after all it is a Public School
