Leading 4WORD

SU has developed the 4Word App to help our leadership teams evaluate the effectiveness of their ministry.

There are many opportunities for a young person to encounter Jesus through the Bible during the running of an activity. The actual time of teaching is one, but there are others. Equally important is how God’s living Word impacted a leader in their preparation and what example of Christian community the leadership team created during the activity. And, to truly help a young person grow in their relationship with Jesus beyond an activity, leaders need to have helped a young person understand what it looks like to live out the truths taught in their own context, at home and at school. This is what a holistic view of Bible Engagement looks like, and this is what it means to lead from the Word of God.

Through guided discussion, the 4Word App will assist our leaders as they reflect on an activity, provide helpful feedback and over time, assist our regional and national teams in identifying areas of strength and weakness, so informing our training going forward.

Although it will always be difficult to measure or quantify the impact of our ministry and what God will do with a seed sown, 4Word is a small step towards ensuring that the quality of the seed sown is improving.
