Rank #2: 57: Hacks On Being Personal w/Students w/Kristen Ivy from Orange
It’s Personal centers around the five questions every leader working with kids should be able to answer: Do you know my name? Do you know what matters to me? Do you know where I live? Do you know what I have done? Do you know what I can do? Taking the time to answer these five questions for a kid or teenager could radically change someone’s faith -- maybe even that of the adult leaders themselves.
Kristen Ivy is the executive director of messaging at Orange, a book and church curriculum publisher focused on family ministry, an environment where the church and family work together to influence the faith and character of the next generation. She is a prolific author, writing several ministry and parenting books. With an understanding and passion for influencing the next generation, she develops effective ministry curriculum for elementary, middle school and high school students.
