Encounter Nights at Boys & Girls Haven
For those of you that don’t know, we have started a group that meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30 -7:30 at Boys and Girls Haven. We call it Encounter group, and it is a time for some volunteers and me to meet with the guys, hang out and talk about whatever is on their mind.
We are doing this instead of a traditional Bible study for several reasons:
1. There are varying ages and maturity to the guys that we meet with, and that can cause difficulty in a traditional Bible study session.
2. There are guys at BGH that may come to this that may not otherwise come to a Bible study.
3. I believe that the Bible has impact in our lives on a daily basis and I want to relate it and apply it to everyday situations. In working with youth for over 12 years, I have found that the best way to grow disciples and apply the Bible effectively to everyday life is to create shared opportunities and a forum for meaningful conversation.
