SPACE blast off 2005-2006

We have a pool party (of all things) on Friday night with the SPACE crew kids - and some new invitees.  This is the blast off, kick off, jump start, lets roll, gentlemen start your engines, etc. time where we start things off  for the school year.  I'm pretty excited about it.  We have a big group of kids that have said they want to be involved and loads of energy and momentum left over from the summer.

Of course, one of the goals is to give these kids some kind of vision for their involvement.  And more than a vision, I think.  It is also giving them a jolt of confidence.  "You are key in another person's life.  You can make a difference.  You can contribute to something much larger than yourself.  You can lead your peers to live life missionally."  That idea is more than just vision.  It's a shared value that is not just taught or spoken.  It's a spontaneous pattern that we are trying to reproduce in these students.

Here is my post from last year's SPACE crew start up get together.
