STEP 3: GATHER A CREW.
A Schools Revolution doesn't rest on just one of us, it rests on all of us - we're in this together.
Starting a School Revolution is a team effort. You can’t change the world on your own, you need the right people around you. The book of Matthew says: “When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.” Matthew 18:20 (MSG)
See if you can find yourself a ‘crew’, a small group of Christian friends who are passionate about seeing your school changed for Jesus. Run the names of your crew past your Youth Pastor or leader and remember that it isn’t about the amount of people you have but about the amount of faith you have. Share your passion with one another and commit to making a long term difference in your school.
When you make a decision to publicly pray in your school you might be surprised with who rocks up. Even if they look different, talk different and go to a different church than you, these are generally good people for your crew. They might be way older, way younger or someone you would never hang with but if they passionately believe in the message of Jesus Christ and want to see the school changed then they are your crew!
STEP 4: MAKE A GAME PLAN.
Our God has given us the ability to dream, so we are going to dream big and plan big to see the Revolution come from Heaven to Earth!
Once you’ve got your crew, it’s time to make a game plan! Figure out what you want to do in your school and how you want to do it. Talk to your crew, your Youth Pastor/Leader and your school chaplain get their input and begin to write it down. The bible says: “Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time.” Habakkuk 2:2-3 (MSG)
Questions to answer when making your game plan:
Who will lead it?
Where are you going to meet?
How regularly are you going to meet?
What are you going to do when you meet?
Will you worship?
Will you do a bible study?
Will there be food?
Will there be games?
How often will you meet with your Youth Pastor or leader for advice?
