Thank you for taking time to consider partnering with the Ashbrook High School Football team during their 2019 Season. Please take a look below at what is involved in hosting a game day dinner. As a fellow minister to students and chaplain of the Greenwave football team, I want to thank you for your consideration and to encourage you to be a part. Not only will you have the opportunity to minister to these students by preparing a meal for them, you will be given a moment (10-12minutes) on that afternoon to share from God’s Word. Imagine the impact this ministry could have!

Thanks again,
Cody L Mummau
Youth Pastor – Bethlehem Church

What Is Required of You:
Two Meals: You will be feeding two teams. The JV on Thursday and the Varsity on Friday. Meal time will be from 4:00-5:00pm generally
Volunteers: You will need about 4 volunteers to help prepare the meal on game day. It is relatively simple but it takes a small crew to do it.
Space: You will be hosting 45-50 people on game day for a meal. If your church does not seat that many but you would still like to host, you can lead the meal at Bethlehem Church’s Student Facility!
Message: You will be given the opportunity to share with these students a short devotional, a testimony, or an encouragement. We are asking that this be short (approx. 10m) and that it be rooted in Scripture. This is YOUR week to speak into the lives of almost 100 young men. Pray now!

What Is Provided to you:
Food: Food will be purchased by the Booster Club for this meal. It will be delivered to you prior to game day with the exception of the drinks ON game day.
The Team: The Team will come to you. They will arrive around 4pm most weeks. They will be ready to eat upon arrival. They will be with you 45-50minutes

Atmosphere:
Focus: It is game day. You don’t need to plan on music or lighting or anything entertaining. They will be focused and quiet. The setting should be as well. It is a pretty cool thing to be a part of.

Cost to feed The GreenWave:

$3.00 per player
Varsity – 50 (Players + Coaches)
JV – 40 (Players + Coaches)
Total Funds requested to help Purchase Food: $250
* We are asking churches to cover the cost of the meals as much as possible. All checks should be made out to  “Ashbrook Booster Club.” However, Inability to cover some or entire cost should NOT deter a church from saying yes!

Join us for a week in New York City sharing the Gospel and ministering alongside of Pastor Boto in Jackson Heights!

These week is very strategic to the work of Jackson Heights Community Church as we intentionally send out short-term mission teams to sift among Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and other seekers who are being drawn to Christ in Jackson Heights. Why Sifting? We trust Jesus’ promise that when the Holy Spirit comes “He will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment” (John 16:8). Our team will partner and join with our local church to sift through the largely immigrant neighborhood identifying those persons who are under conviction from the Holy Spirit through dreams, restless hearts, or simply openness to a Gospel witness. Our week will be filled with prayer, worship, training, witnessing, serving, temple visits and of course enjoying ethnic food and fellowship. We will be very intentional in learning about Eastern religions and having a deeper understanding of Eastern worldviews and culture in the context of our diverse neighborhood. We will greatly multiply their efforts to engage and look for “persons of peace” who are hungry to hear the good news of God’s Salvation.

Here are a couple basic things your need to know now:

Dates of trip: July 6-13 (Sat-Sat)
Cost of trip: $575/person
Deposit Due: ($100) May 15
Who can go?: High School Students and older

FIRST! Fill out the mission team app: High School Mission Week Application

(Please note that you will be taken to the Bethlehem Church site. To fill out the app, you will need to get a Bethlehem username and password. Instructions will be given there.)

WHY THIS STUDY?

Without question, most of usvparents have said that we are glad we don’t have to be raised in the current adolescent culture. The problem is, our teens do! The biggest challenge a we face is learning how to transfer the principles and values we hold dear, to ou teen who is growing up in a contrary culture. Parents are frustrated with how to make an impact, and our teens are equally unsatisfied and disappointed that they’re not learning the necessary skills to make it in today’s world.

Together we’ll learn from Mark Gregston as he shares his wisdom gained from forty years of working and living with teens and helping their families. As the founder of Heartlight,a residential counseling center for struggling teens, Mark has gained proven insight and understanding, and now shares those concepts necessary for every parent to make a connection with their teen; aconnection that offers real help, and ushers in hope for every teen.

Understanding the influences a teen must deal with today calls for a new way of parental engagement and a shift in parenting styles. Mark’s authentic relational model will enlighten you with creative and successful ways to deal with today’s issues and develop deeper relationships within your family!
