Our mission is to unite the local body of Christ with a plan of action to influence the schools with the Gospel. So our strategy starts and ends when people unite together for this single cause. Unity looks different, and the same, everywhere. In some places, networking student pastors is natural. In some places, there are no student pastors within a 30 minute drive. Either way, our goal is to get people from multiple churches and denominations together to share the hope of Christ with students in their schools. Check out the ‘Roles’ tab for who is involved in this unity and what role each group of people can play.
Practically, the ministry of First Priority gets worked out through a club at school. First Priority clubs follow a four-week strategy called EPIC. EPIC is an acronym for Equip, Prepare, Invite & Connect.
Equipping students with a gospel tool. Students learn how to share the gospel using a variety of gospel resources.
Preparing students to lead. Students prepare their personal testimony, prepare to share the gospel during Invite Week, and prepare themselves as leaders.
Inviting students to hear the gospel. Students invite their classmates to hear the gospel and respond.
Connecting students to local churches and the community. Students are connected to local churches to be nurtured and discipled.
