The Witness Stand Mission and Culture About This Session This session begins with an interactive, large group game on pop culture. The Proclaim discusses what it means to be a missionary, how we are called to interact with culture, and how we can engage teens in their specific temperaments. The Break is a handout that helps the Core Members identify unique ways they can reach out to specific teens. The Send encourages Core Members to choose a saint to be an intercessor for their ministry and then closes with a period of Praise and Worship. Goal of This Night To equip and empower the Core Members to be missionaries to the teens. Catechism # 851 # 854 Scripture Mark 15:16 Acts 1:8 Acts 4:20 1 Corinthians 9:19 -23 Key Concepts – As Core Members, we are called to enter into a different culture (music, social media, celebrity personalities, TV shows), become acquainted with a different language (text shorthand, urban dictionary colloquialisms), and learn about and reach out to each temperament differently. – There are specific ways we can minister to teens of different temperaments. – The mission is urgent. So many souls do not yet know the love of Christ. Jesus is calling each of us, as He did the first apostles, to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation” (Mark 16:15).
