Giving youth pastors the tools they need to make and shape disciples.

Loving Your Neighbor With Pizza

1 · 29 · 18

I love this photo from @larrykim

This is what #hustle looks like. This photo says everything about a man willing to reach his goals by smuggling his resume in a gift. It’s a Trojan Horse or rather a Trojan Pizza.

It makes me think of how we “sneak” the gospel to our students. We buy pizza, play games, organize service projects, all the while sharing/living the gospel.

As youth workers, and as Christians, this photo should inspire us to include the gospel in our simplest actions. What if we delivered pizza to all our neighbors with a message written inside that said,

We just wanted to let you know that God loves pizza and He loves you. If you have any prayer requests please feel free to e-mail me at ________________

Love, your neighbor

What a simple concept with potentially life changing results.

Just like the man who courted potential employers, we can send a message to our neighbors that will not soon be forgotten.

If you are looking for more outreach ideas, I recommend the book Conspiracy of Kindness by Steven Sjogren

“to make sure no students graduate or move on to other courses without proving they have mastered what they have studied.”

This begs the question “Have our students mastered what they have studied?” Never mind mastering what have studies, but what have they studied? How do we know if a student is ready to leave our youth ministry?
