PIPELINE STUDENT MINISTRY
In Relationship with God
1. We seek the will of the Father.
a. Matthew 6:9-13 “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.”
2. We seek the model of Jesus.
a. Matthew 16:24-27 “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life[f] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.”
3. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit.
a. Galatians 5:16, 22-26 “So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh... But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”
In Relationship with Church
1. As people approved by the love of God, we love another.
a. 1 John 4:7-8 “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not
love does not know God, because God is love.”
2. As teachers of the gospel, we look to deliver the truth for the glory of God.a. 1 Thessalonians 2:4 “On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts.”
3.As leaders, we lead our ministry team to this love and truth of God.
a. 1 Corinthians 11:1 “Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.”
In Relationship with World
1. We welcome any and all students to our ministry.
a. Mark 2:17 “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are
sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
2. We connect these students to the loving and convicting truth of the gospel.
1 Thessalonians 2:4 “On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be
entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests
a. 2 Corinthians 7:9-10 “Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. For godly sorrow produces
repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.”
3. We disciple them to become more like Christ in our church community.
a. Matthew 28:19-20 Go [a]therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
