Listen in as Dan and Chris chat with Theo Davis about Impacting Students Digitally.

Four Considerations When Serving Our Students Digitally:

  1. We are cross-cultural communicators.
  2. We need to embrace social media as a tool.
  3. We need to personally lean into social media.
  4. We need to create a digital lobby for our students (Discord).

Listen in as Dan and Zac discuss ideas for planning out your teaching moments during the summertime months.

Some Ideas from Chris:

  1. The summer offers a unique opportunity to teach on a particular issue or topic because of the short season it is. Consider what’s happening in current youth and popular culture and intentionally plan a short series that will address it.
  2. Plan your events first then your teaching.
  3. Consider a short NT letter or OT narrative to teach in broad strokes.
  4. Consider letting students teach.
  5. Keep the Fall in mind (know where you’re going).
  6. Don’t be afraid to try something new. (Use a Bible study with video, work through a particular topic, bring in a couple of guest speakers, etc)
