Pastor’s Column

Growing Seeds

It’s a Life or Death Proposition Chaucer said April is the cruellest month, but frankly I’ve always thought of November that way. After the vitality of summer and the splendour of the Fall, along comes November when the skies turn adamant gray, the trees are naked, and it seems like nothing will ever grow again. Don’t believe it! It’s just a masquerade! Beneath that deceptive face our faith says “unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds (John 12:24).” On that basis November is the beginning of life, growth, new possibilities! That’s why our cover is a celebration of germinating fruitfulness! This issue offers several perspectives on growth. From tips for more effective Bible-study, to a story of life-transformation from the season of death to 4

life. We have insights into growing a healthy youth group from new youth pastor Adam Goudreault to some resources to help youngsters grow from children’s pastor Joanna Ratz. Refuse to take the bait and relent on growth, just because you see death around you! Let the kernel of God’s word in your soul dwell in you richly and produce many seeds in you!

How to Make a Youth Group Grow November Bible Reading

By Adam Goudreault

Many factors come into play when you’re trying to grow a youth group, especially a healthy one. Some of these are easy to identify, and some aren’t. And then there are the ones that are completely outside our control. We’d never say it out loud, but sometimes we can think that if we put all the right building blocks together in the right order, then we can create the perfect formula for growing a healthy youth group. Some of these things might include a young, hip youth pastor, surreal special events, an amazing band, and maybe even mature, dedicated leaders. None of these things are bad in and of themselves, and some of these (like mature dedicated leaders…) are what I’d say are fundamental and completely essential if you want do anything with longevity and substance. But it’s hard to determine what those building blocks look like unless there’s a general consensus as to what a healthy youth group is, and how a healthy youth group should function. Just a precursor, we all agree that ultimately, it’s God who’s responsible for any spiritual growth anywhere. But, I’m truly convinced that there are some things that we as adults can cultivate in our Church environment that will create an atmosphere more conducive to what God’s trying to do in the lives of our young people. Obviously, a successful youth group is energetic, crammed full, and has a skate park attached to it. Conversely, a healthy youth group, while it may contain these things, doesn’t consist of them.

In order for a youth to adopt this kind of culture, it has to be demonstrated across the entire Church. Otherwise, no matter how well it sticks while they’re in the Students Ministries’ age brackets, they’ll be thrown off track by the inconsistency they experience in the rest of their Church life. The strongest need that young people are lacking today is adult involvement in their lives. Not just in Church, although that’s indeed worth examining, but in the totality of their lives as well.

Often we talk about the next generation as if we’re expecting them to turn things around for the Church. It’s a beautiful concept, and certainly the Bible is full of that imagery. However, the functions of the family and the Church, in their inherently intergenerational design, sounds like it’s us adults that are supposed to turn our students around.

A healthy youth group should be and do a few things simultaneously. It brings the people currently in the group closer together [Inreach], it evangelizes non-believers and equips students to do likewise [Outreach], it brings people currently in the group closer to God [Discipleship], and it prepares students for adult life [Growing Up]. All of these can be broken down into much more detail and strategy, but I’m convinced that a healthy, growing youth group must consist of these 4 things.

Exciting, right?

Tips for Better Bible Study

By Mark Driscoll When tempted by the devil to turn stones into bread after a 40-day fast in the wilderness, Jesus responded by saying simply and profoundly, “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Paul, when writing to his protégé, Timothy, writes that, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16–17). David writes, “I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes” (Psalm 119:48). The implications are clear: life and growth come from the study of God’s words through Scripture. We are not to read and study the Bible begrudgingly but rather view it as the source of life and, like David, love God’s word. But the reality is that we all struggle at times to study faithfully or joyfully. So, it’s nice to have a few principles to help us refocus our love and study of Scripture. Below are six principles that I’ve found beneficial.

1. Actively serve and participate in a local church to learn with and from other Christians. Colossians 3:16 (NIV): “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.”

2. Be under the authority of Scripture to be interpreted by it, not over the Scripture to be interpreted by you.

Hebrews 4:12–13 (NIV): “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-­ edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”

3. Pick up the Bible for life transformation, not just mental information.

John 5:39–40 (NIV): “You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.”

4. Pick up the Bible for relational purposes—not functional ones— so that you will love God and not just know or use him.

5. Don’t just get into the Word; get the Word into you. Memorization, Psalm 119:11: “I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”

Meditation, Ezra 7:10: “For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the LORD, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.”

6. Don’t think you need more knowledge. Often you need more obedience to the knowledge you already have.

James 1:22 (NIV): “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” Mark Driscoll is the pastor of Seattle’s Mars Hill Church. The above was adapted from his blog http://pastormark. tv/2012/04/17/7-tips-for-betterbible-study

Matthew 7:21–23 (NIV): “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’“

4. If you like books with pictures (Tell the truth,

who doesn’t?) try Family Time Bible in Pictures by Kenneth N. Taylor. It’s a short devotional for kids ages 3 – 6 with dramatic, memorable pictures.

by Joanna Ratz

I’m a mom, I’m a pastor, I’m a Christ-follower. I get it, kids are our greatest treasure and our biggest responsibility. We long to, and we must pass the faith down to the next generation. On Calvary’s dedication stone by the elevator doors, this is commemorated with Psalm 71, “do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come (v. 18).” But how do we do it? Where do we find the help we need to talk to our kids about God in meaningful ways?

5. A website and a book with lots of

encouragement for developing your home as a place for growing kids spiritually is Faith Begins at Home by Mark Holmen (www.faithbeginsathome.com).

Do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come Psalm 71:18

An old poem had it right.

When you get what you want in your struggle for self
 And the world makes you king for a day Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
 And see what that man has to say. For years John Klompenhauer had a problem with the man in the mirror. “I never thought of myself as worthy,” John confesses, “with others or with God.” Raised in a home torn by brokenness, dysfunction and religious hypocrisy, John vowed “I’ll never be a Christian.” As a result his issues with self-image brought him to some pretty ugly places. “In my younger days, drug addictions became a daily nightmare.” John had begun to follow Christ after conversion at a summer camp, but it never stuck. He went to church and tried to fit in with the youth. After he did his best, he quit. “I just couldn’t cut it.” Before he knew it, he was 26 years old, married with two kids... and very unhappy. After the abuse his body had taken, John was a sick man. He had been suffering from stomach ulcers, and heart palpitations. “One night I looked in the crib,

and I started to cry about what a crappy father I was. I just hated my life. I wanted to die.” That night he collapsed, and on his knees, feeling like he was dying, he cried out to God. “OK, God. Fine. Save me! I’ll do it your way.” And miraculously, immediately, he was saved! “Instant relief! I had been trying to flee the voice of God, and now I was free! Free from drugs, free from smoking, free from physical pain!” It was a powerful story of life-change, and John was a truly transformed man! He began attending church, started reading the Bible, and growing as a believer.

were experiencing similar pain. “It was a place of love and acceptance, an atmosphere of openness and intimacy,” John explains. In a climate of authenticity where people deal where their problems honestly, it was possible to no longer fear rejection.

The Challenge of the Mirror

John had discovered Celebrate Recovery, a ministry for people with hurts, habits and hang-ups that prevent them from experiencing the abundance and freedom that Christ has provided. Through a series of Bible studies called step-studies, and meetings where openness and accountability are encouraged people like John experience miracles.

But there was that pesky problem of the man in the glass. “With my external issues fixed, I never realized before all the internal stuff that had to be dealt with.” Despite the amazing change in John’s life, he still had relational problems: withdrawal, fear of intimacy, struggles with pornography as an escape. “I still wasn’t a great husband.”

“I wasn’t going to come to God unless I was perfect, but I really get it that Jesus loves me just the way I am,” John admits. And that reality has made all the difference. No more problems with the man in the mirror! “I don’t just tolerate myself, anymore. Now I love myself, and that gives me the capacity to love others.”

It was a deep interior battle. John had definitely experienced a miracle from God, but he still had profound problems. And now a new problem: loneliness and a deep sense of failure as a Christian. John recalls sadly, “I had been to Bible studies, and small groups, I had met other Christians, but no one to talk with about my pain.”

CELEBRATE RECOVERY meets Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM right here at Calvary
