Who wants to play Airsoft?

I do not. I did not. And neither did a lot of my students. But this one kid did. Oh man did he want to shoot people with plastic pellets.

What started out in my ministry as an ever increasing "No we won't do that as an event" eventually became a "Why don't you plan that with your small group and invite some friends?"

Game changer my friends.

In this episode I talk about using small groups to plan small events and use them as an outreach tool.

Here are some things to think about:

    How can you scehdule outreach in such a way that isn't a drain on you or your volunteers? Using student ideas for events to get student buy-in. Planning to invite friends this week to come back next week. Elevating your small group leaders to get them more invested

Get out there and get students inviting their friends to church! And potentially airsoft matches...
