I have talked a little over the last several weeks about a new ministry we are beginning called “transit.” It’s purpose is pair up students with caring adults to shepherd and mentor them through junior high, high school and into life following high school. Once our incoming sixth graders are set I will turn my attention to the other grades. My goal is to have all grades set up by the end of next school year. If you want more details of what I am envisioning you can check out this post, “Creating Meaningful Relationships in Student Ministry.”
I thought I would make the resources available to other youth workers in the process as I am putting it together. Feel free to use, adapt, and make better. Here are a few letters, one is to the congregation, one is to parents and one is to sixth graders. As I get more finalized this next week I will add them here.
