4 Ways VSM Equips Our VGroup Leaders
C4 Explosion is a yearly gathering that allows volunteers of the four C’s to engage and encourage each other as they embark on the upcoming year. This will take place in the fall. Student VGroup leaders will meet in addition to C4 explosion again in the spring.
It is just as important for leaders to grow in community as it is for students. As leaders, we must demonstrate what it means to be a family in Christ because we both set and live the standard. Build Up is a way for leaders to connect with fellow leaders, their families and the VSM staff. Build Up will take place twice a semester. Dates and locations may vary. Build Up will allow the VSM staff to emulate relational discipleship with VGroup leaders and challenge them to do the same with their students. Leaders will engage in fellowship and spiritual growth while allowing transparency to discuss internal questions regarding their VGroup.
Effective VGroup leaders not only value the leader/student relationship, but also value the leader/parent relationship. The Village Student Ministry Staff understands the importance of prioritizing the parent as the leader of discipleship and the role of the staff and VGroup leader in walking alongside the parent in the effort to disciple. To rebuild this form of discipleship in the home, VSM is committed to scheduling a Parent Party for each VGroup. The goal of Parent Parties is to build community among the families, specifically the parents of your VGroup. The staff will join your group on this evening and share with parents ways their student can grow in their relationship with Christ and grow as a leader within the student ministry and community. Parents will be able to ask questions and receive helpful resources to continue discipleship within their home.
VGroup leaders sacrifice a lot of time investing in the lives of their students. It is important to acknowledge that investment with Appreciation Nights. Twice a year Village Church will provide an evening or event to show volunteers how much the church and staff appreciate them.
