You’ve made the decision to bring Zip to your zip code, and you’ve determined which activities best fit the gifts, interests, and needs of your church and community. Now the big question: How do I enlist workers for the task at hand? Check out these Zip Tips to get you moving in the right direction.
Tip 1: Seek out those who have a passion and interest in seeing kids come to know who God is.
Tip 2: Tap in to the resources you have in your church. Do you have an art teacher, a musician, a coach in your congregation? Get them plugged into leading a track which allows them to share their passion.
Tip 3: Equip those you have enlisted for success. Give them plans for the area they are to lead in. Help them locate supplies. Offer training to get them down to a kid’s level.
Tip 4: Give your older youth a chance to serve as assistants or to lead a Huddle Up during the Large Group session.
Tip 5: Show appreciation for those who stepped up to the plate.
