Adventus is my newest resource geared around Advent. Advent is, if you do not know, means ‘Coming’ in Latin. This is why I used the Latin word Adventus as the title. Advent is the coming of Jesus into the world. Many Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas
If your students deserve a Christmas present this year it’s the gift of consistency.
I know you want to be consistent with students online and off but life gets busy and I understand that; that’s why I created Adventus, so you can have a consistent online presence during Advent.
If you’re thinking, “I would love to engage with my students over 28 day” then this resource may be of interest to you, but I also know you may have some questions, so let me try to answer them.
Does my church or do I have to practice Advent for this to be valuable?
No. Even if you or your church to not adhere to Advent, 28 devotions and 28 graphics still says to your students, “I’m showing up every day for you”.
Is the devotion too much for them?
Each devotion is bite sized and will take students a whole minute to read. There are questions and a prayer included. You can’t control whether they read it, answer the questions or pray the prayer but it’s there for them if they want to step from shallow immaturity to growing in their faith.
Do you say anything weird or controversial?
Nope, straight orthodoxy, scripture focused with a little fun tossed in.
So, what could happen in 28 day with Adventus?
- You could remind teens what Christmas is about
- You could find yourself in engaging conversations.
- You could have students leaving feedback.
- You could have students spiritually grow.
There are multiple ways to use this resource, if you do have the time.
- What if you used the devotions to make short video?
- What if you printed off the devotions in book form and gave it to students?
- What if you took just the devotions, questions prayers and texted them to your students?
This is just a taste of what you could do, I have more ideas listed in the resource itself.
Adventus is in pre-sale mode right now and I’d like to make your life even easier.
If we reach 50 sales by November 22nd I will create an audio version of the devotions complete with music, etc. making the devotions even more accessible to your students.
If we reach 100 sales by November 22nd I will give you 28 bonus graphics that will have your students weighing in on a Christmas This or That. (Example: Silent Night or Jingle Bells)
If we reach 200 sales by November 22nd, I will make videos of each of the devotions that you can download, put on your Youtube channel or other social media.
So, what do you think? Could this be the best Christmas ever if your teens are engaged with the the gospel, the true meaning of Christmas and relationship building with you?
I think it might be.
