WHAT IS HOPE?
HOPE is a focused outreach plan that enables local churches to help students create an environment to share the gospel with friends at school. As this strategy takes form, Christian students will initiate and lead a Christian club at their school. HOPE is an acronym that is followed each month. So each month, the club will take a club meeting to Help (Christian students understand how to share the gospel), Overcome (their feet of sharing the gospel), Prepare (their personal faith story), and Engage (their peers with the gospel).
These student-led clubs operate under the guidelines of the Equal Access Act. This effort is focused on outreach, with a plan to incorporate students who are reached at school into local churches, including your local church. Each club should reflect the personality and giftedness of the students who lead club meetings and the youth worker who guides them.
Definition: [verb] To maintain contact with (a person) so as to monitor the effects of earlier activities or treatments. The act or an instance of following up, as to further an end or review new developments.
Two thoughts on follow up:
1. Why do everything else if you are not going to follow up?
2. Student led, student initiated follow up.
We offer a HOPE Manual and a weekly toolkit for student leaders to use for those who have adult coaches and sponsors who have been vetted and trained. Fill out any of our many forms on this website to begin that process.
