1. GO TO THEIR EVENTS Your students will not only see that you care enough about them to take time out of your busy schedule to come and see them, but their parents will also see that you care about their kid!
3. ASK YOUR STUDENTS TO SHARE IN FRONT OF THEIR PEERS This can be very intimidating for them. But I believe that it makes a huge impact on them & those who ae listening. It's easy to pretend everything is perfect and you're always on fire for Jesus, but you would be shocked what a simple testimony on a Wednesday night could do to your ministry.
2. SPEND TIME WITH THEM This one seems like a no-brainer, but it's often over-looked. It's seriously amazing to see what a simple 45 minute talk over coffee with a student can do to your relationship & their self-esteem. It breaks down walls, and you get to see what they're like not surrounded by friends.
