YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

POST FALLS YOUTH


Are you interested in developing your faith and growing in your relationship with God and others?

Real Life Ministries offers a process for 7th-12th grade students to increase their ability to apply God’s Word and discover how to own their faith.






VISION

To educate, equip, and empower students to reach the world for Jesus one person at a time.




MISSION

To create a relational, intentional, and reproducible process of spiritual development.






AREAS OF DEVELOPMENT



    

GROW AS A DISCIPLE

HEAD: Committed to following Jesus.
HEART: Committed to being changed by Jesus.
HANDS: Committed to the Mission of Jesus.
FEET: Commited to Walking it Out where you live work and play.

    

SPIRITUAL

You will deepen your relationship with God and grow your spiritual roots through discovering and developing a personal devotional time. You will get to know Him as you learn how to navigate and unpack His word and spend time connecting with Him in prayer.

    

DISCOVER, OWN, UNDERSTAND

Through the process, we will be going through apologetics and doctrine to help you discover what you believe, understand why you believe it, and be able to take personal ownership of your faith.

    

PASS IT ON

As you discover, understand, and own what you believe you will become equipped with the skills to pass it on to others. To be a disciple who makes disciples.

TIME COMMITMENT


The Youth Development Process is a 9-month program that runs during the school year. It is broken into 2 semesters which coincide with the school schedule (Fall Semester: Sept- Mid Jan, Spring Semester: Mid Jan-May).
*We recommend that students commit to a whole year, but we will give students the option to join or drop each semester.




   

YOUR ACTIVE WEEK

This is a 4-6 hour a week commitment broken into 3 components (Head, Heart, and Hands). This is designed to be in addition to your weekend worship service attendance and your youth group and small group participation each week.

Head:
You will spend time each week in class learning and discussing content designed to help deepen your relationship with the Lord and to help you Discover, Understand, Own, and Reproduce your faith.
• Classroom 1.25 Hours
- Sundays | Room 301 // MS 8 - 9:15 AM // HS 9:45- 11 AM

Heart:
Students will have homework each week to spend time processing what they’re learning.
• Homework ~ 1 Hour
• Mentorship 1 Hour Every other week

(High School Only)
• Each student will be paired up with a mentor who they will meet with every other week to intentionally dig into their personal relationship with God and what He is teaching them.

Hands:
Each student will have the opportunity to grow and serve others by being a part of either our Set Up team or Tear Down team at youth group. This gives students time to grow relationally with other students. We also know that an important part of our Christian walk is serving others and Set Up/ Tear Down is a good step in starting this. Students are welcome to be involved in other areas of serving, but this is all that will be required for the YD Process.
• Ministry Involvement ~2 hours
• Set Up/ Tear Down at youth group
• Times differ depending on MS or HS youth group.

Additional Retreats:
We will do a retreat in the Fall and in the Spring.
