5. Church's view of students and the student ministry

How do you think Southside Baptist Church views students and the student ministry?

Future "them"

They don't put enough of an interest in our well being.

I think they might think that we are a little wild, but I think they love us and want to see us grow

they are beginning to recognize we are an importatnt part of the church

as being mature

they are starting to recognize us

most care : think we'er strange but want us to come closer ot God and see we'er trying

others: don't care want to be a pue filler or don't like us

provide opportunties

Youth ministry is supportive and open to new ideas

I think that Southside puts a great amount of importance on youth, and that they really care for them

The elder adults think that we are just wild and crazy but they never actually see how supportive and caring we are for one another. We really do care they just never see it in the sanctuary. Because we do most of the action outside of church and in the youth house.

Sometimes i almost think that the church looks down on us but i mean like though we may do things that are wrong once in a while it doesn’t mean we're like terrible or anything because i think that most of us are pretty good kids! But they also do think good of us sometime :)

They elder adults just think of us wild and crazy youth and they never act

The elder adults think that we are just wild and crazy kids who dont know how to behave but they never see us caring for anybody else or grieving for them when something or someone has passed away or moved. They never actually

6. What is your attitude toward SSBC?

What is your attitude toward Southside Baptist Church?

AWESOME

I think we need more unity, everyone is in groups.

good

I am glad to be there. We are moving in the right direction.

I really like it here!! I love like all the people and it seems like they are really close to God and i know that it has been a church that i have easily been accepted into and i feel like i have been there all of my life and stuff i love it

I enjoy it, i wish we were more unified

its alot better than it used to be

I think that Southside is a great church but is very clickish if you know what I mean. There are to many groups like popular and unpopular. We have tried to fix it in the past but when we did the people that wanted to fix it just completely ignored what they said about there being to many groups. We are to into ourselves and guys/girls to even realize that someone is hurting inside or has a real problem. Adults do WAY too much in the church and youth group. I mean why do you think they call it a YOUTH group? We are so intrested in our social life we never get interested in spiratual life. I mean really do you ever just go up to someone and ask them how their walk with God is? Think about it.!

the youth group is great now

We need to focus on helping the youth.

i really like it here. my other church didn't have much influence on me spiritually and i have never been to a church that raises their hands in praise and I just think that is so cool

two thumbs up

I love it

I think that it is pretty good and that it is getting better

for Youth it's lame, adults want to do things their way and and want to get the thing done but don't pay enough attention to who it is they’re doing the thing for

I love the spirit of openess

I love it. I wish everyone could make friends width each other and that noone would fell left out.

I would like for us to get to know other grtoup in the church.

7. Ways Christians are different from non-Christians

In what ways should Christians be different from non-Christians?

We accept

we should watch what we say and what we support by attendance

love even the hard to love; show grace

We are happier because we have Jesus in our our lives and we should spread that happiness.

not many

we see and hear "bad and misused" words differently and cannot tolerate them when spoken

we know we will go to heaven with no doubt in mind

hardley nothing except they havent excepted the lord yet

well there should be a definite difference between like christians and non christians however sometimes that is like not the case

respect every one

the struggle to constently be more like Jesus

better morals be like Jesus more understanding kind not a fighting aggressive,fighting attitude better morals

they believe in things of the world and we beleive in things of god

they are more likely to do things for themselves we are more likely to do things god wants us to do

they dont know that god has a will for them

8. Ways to enhance relevance of services to students

How could our services be more relevant to you as a student?

It seems good right now so no comment

involve us more in the services from week to week

We need a few choruses like we sing in youth group plus the hymns

we need more "youth services" I love participating.

we could use classes on different spiritual levels and a varity of subjects

i agree with the youth services

moer fellowship with them

I agree with more youth services. More youth involvement means more youth interest.

more our music more up to date with us relivant to our life the things we face - not JUST the big easy things to talk about

murray could use more illistrations so we could understand what he is talkin about

9. Preference of music for worship services

What are your preferences of the types of music to be used in worship services at Southside Baptist Church? (And Why?)

i prefer the music that is more nowadays (like over hymns) because i know them better and it is makes me focus more on worhshipping God than having to read the song out of a book. Sometimes hymns are ok though i just prefer the other kind better

Something that require low notes

i like the newer songs that don't sound like they were written over a hundred years ago.

i like the newer praise and worship songs, maybe have a prasie group lead the worship time

i prefer a more contemporary worship service because i can really get into it be cause the music is cool and the words are more along the way of how i feel

it's hard for me to get into the older style music because its so slow and tradional

lower music The songs are waaaay too high.

We also need a little bit of modern choruses and such.

i like the one's that have a fast beat and uplifting words, not the songs from the hymnal

what you are doing now is fine

i think the music is fine

i love the music now

I like the songs we sing in youth group, if Jeff could do a mix of the ones helikes to do and then do some of the youth ones i think it would be great

praise and worship, and modern music, stuff we can indentife to todays stuff

I like more modern and contemparary songs.

10. Other comments, observations, and suggestions

This is very fun (seriously)

RANDY IS REALLY COOL!!!

The youth need more fun time with other youth.

We need to unite we each other and other youth goups!

This is sooooo AWESOME:^)

life is like a box of chocolates, you never know if you are going to get a razer in your chocolate.

we should do this every month. Cortney is staring at me.

i think that like we need to start bringin more friends and stuff to all the activities and stuff like that !! i mean i love u guys and all but we need to reach out to like everyone else and MEET NEW PEOPLE and pull them into our youth group

This is an exciting time to be alive. I wonder how we can use technology to reach people.

I'm glad you are doing this and everybody should get a chance to do this

o by the way i LOVE this!! its AWESOME!!!!!

This is a great idea I would love to do this again.

I think parents are too hard on the middle children!! I mean the elder child is the oldest and most perfect and the younger child is the baby and the middle child is just kind of stuck there in the middle for decoration if you know what i mean. They always get in trouble and the parents never understand their problems. Because they just don't feel right in the home when they get no attention. If you live with me you know who I am!!

Youth rule. Others are ok. Do good. Eat more chicken. Read sports magazines.

Cortney is still staring at me( just kidding)

you should keep doing this

Thanks for the support by doing a project like this. I love efficient methods of improving things in an open manner

I think we need to go to one camp a year RANDY!!! and keep going to that camp because we make friends and end up losing them.

King David Yoder

This is a GREAT way to tell adults how us teenagers feel!;*)

Stopstaring at me EVAN!!!

3. have every one the chuch try to get closer not just us

4. teach the adults how to deal with youth

i really don't know what that is suppost to mean

Listen to youth, all adults

Understand what we are going through as teenagers

friends not confession

people working with youth

Just be yourself and don't try to be like us, you are teaching us things that are to become, if you act like us then you know as little as we do.

teach them what to do with the youth

maybe to know what is normal youth behaviors and what are not normal or unhealthy

Adults are to controlitive (no offence) they need to let the youth do some stuff.

educate all of the adults how to deal with us, like what we think is cool or not

its probably the church in general like all adults in general i dont know exactly

Whatever I dont understand this.

understand the peer pressure we have to deal with and stress we are going thru

not to think that we are babies

adults in general.

and youth workers.

adults in general, to have an open mind our ideas may be different so find out why and then try to help us

i allready put somethings in but adults that work with youth

not to treat us like babies

does anyone know how to deal with youth?

Recommended Actions COMMENTS

1. go on more mission trips and like do stuff for people around the community

mission trips would be cool

missions trips

Community work and missions trips are totally awesome!

mission trips would be nice for those who are ready

I would like to go back to Venezuala and do stuff with the kids because they are so sweet

limit cost to be easily available to everyone

Yes we should it would be a good opportunities to tell others about christ who don't even have a bible or go to church

Go to South and Central America.

help people out like little things such as raking leaves for elderly, singing in nursing homes, passing out food at a homless shelter, and more things like we do at sparkman homes and going on a mission trip to like africa or europe or something like that

go on a free missions trip to Austrailia

I think mission trips are a good idea for those people who know what they are getting into

2. See more people come to Christ

This issue is so-o-o important!

We should always try to increase our sphere

This is the most important issue, it is always awesome to see people get saved

get not-christions to come by making church attractive to them

reach out to others and invite them

activities open to everyone to get non christians envolved in a non threatening activity

i would love to see my friends come to christ that would be sooo awesome

3. I’m interested in having a course on evolution vs creationism and one on our baptist belifs, how we back them up biblicaly compared to other religions

i really think that this will help us in later life and in helping us help others to come to Christ

I am really interested in creation vs evolution

It is a good way to start to be rid of the first common sense doubt that comes up

Yes this would be cooool

I think this is a good idea so when people ask us about evolution we will be prepared on what to say

have educators explain these differences

there are workshops that deal with this that i have been too, i think it's cool

I think a creation vs. evolution course would be good.

Provide very simple and brief handouts

have a class that taugh us how to be able to support our beliefs and prove evolution is wrong

show/tell us what the common baptist beliefs are and how they are backed up scripturally, and compare them to other denominations and other religions

Everyone needs help on this idea and to learn more about it

4. i would like to do more stuff in the summer like going to other states

we should take field trips

mission trips and one camp that we go to each year would be greta

We should use this oppurtunity to include those who do not know about Jesus

I mean great.

Yes we should -- it would be fun

go on a mission trip here in the states, go sing in other churches, and do drama nice idea

limit cost

Go to Florida and theme parks

in nashville, atlanta, memphis we could do stuff

have youth earn their money for trips with activities or fun raisers

go to theme parks or california

5. help non-christians

I think that we need to bring more nonchristians to church.

I agree we need to minister to others

It is our duty to tell others about what have learnt, and tell other about it.

invite them to church let them met the people

do stuff that will get non christians attention

That is one of the main issues we face, ministering to our lost friends. Plus It would be good to have help on knowing how to minister.

attempt to witness to them and bring our nonchristian friends to church and not worry bout what every one thinks bout them

we should bring our friends that don't have a relationship with Jesus to church and don't judge them and just accept them as your friends so they don't become depressed and turn away from God

this is where we change eso they see an example and where we learn to help them on an individual basis

do activities to make them feel welcome and accepted

teach us how to minister to unbelivers so we can be equipped to help them were ever we are

6. teach on how a Christian should look at the world from a biblical perspective

It would be very useful for those of us who are going to the "real world" that we would be decieved by the world such as the camp Randy has recommended.

WE should talk about this on Wednesday nights

there are workshops on this

more information from experts or leaders

we need to see this stuff in writing so we know were it comes from so it doesn't seem like it came out of nowhere and we can tell others who ask about our outlook were we get it from

7. more student led things

More youth lead services! Those are fun! :)

we should definately have more youth lead services

youth lead services are great

like have the youth plan some of our activities so that its not just the adults doing all the work and us sitting on our butts. We can have like and feel that we have participated and helped out and actually DID some of the work and it will make us appreciate the activity more

i really liked the youth led services. we should do that once a month just to reveal our feelings

Everybody always comments how the youth should participate more well maybe we could if the adults would move over and let the 20th century roll in

We need more youth led activities, services, fundraisers,etc.

yes every student should get to do something like lead something.

We should have a schedule for which service we are to lead.

i agree with more student led services, we should also have a youth drama team that will perform in front of the church

SO in other words Adults need to move over!

skits music

We should do more youth lead services. Maybe we should plan more of the services. The youth could deliver a skit or song or a message during the normal services.

8. i would also like to see us grow closer together like as a youth group and "bond" with EVERYONE in the youth group

I think that we should be together for a while with some ther people that aren't like our best friends.

we need a whole lot of a less CLICKLY youth group

I agree with that and don't misjudge the lower classmen

Eat more chicken

I think we need to pair up with somebody we don't know very well and be prayer partners.

yes do more things together

everyone should become more unified, and accepting. I don't think we should leave people out, and make new people feel at home

We need more "group" (as in things where we have no choice but to team with people to accomplish a goal thet requires more than one) activities. We can make things like we have done with the game room(located in Youth House).

do more things together like go places and hang out with eachother love each other, go on trips like Awanita that helped me and i think everyone to come closer together

classes in how to communicate better

do things we want to do six flags and stuuf like that can bring people together because they'er having fun together

information on better skills dealing with other youth and adults. This would also help with future interviews for jobs and college

9. We need somthing to keep the older youth at the church.

We need more "adults" closer to our age range to relate with

Have more activities with only older kids.

go to dctalk concerts

Drive to activities every wendsday or sunday night.

i love dctalk conecterrs, i don't have any clue on how to keep them hear but we need something

yes they can teach the little kids

I have noticied that some of our older youth are not participating so we need to make some activities they would like.

do more stuff that older youth like

a dctalk concert is a good idea. mabe sonicflood or ffh concert.

We need things that the older crowd, but their mind changes very often, and what they like can be very costly, so we must come up with a system that is ran by them, and maybe participate in events, which are inappropriate that is outside of church (as in younger Youth Group).

i agree with doin' more stuff older youth like, I STRONGLY agree

10. I think we need more group activities.

do more activites during the year

go to concerts

i think we should go on field trips or like a zoo or six flags

lots of group activities

we always go on great trips like awanita but then when we get attached to someone we never see them again because you (randy) schedule a different trip each year.

go to more things like put-put golf ,bowling, and the movies

more group activities

do fun things

hang out more

do more things together, take more trips and stuff like that, hang out, etc etc etc

sports activites

just hanging out is what a mojority of the youth want to do

hang out most of the time and have a worship time at the end or visa versa

pool and ping-pong tournaments

mess around in the youth house

yes we should get to see our friends more

do another one of these [teen think tank]

mission trips, and summer stuff and door to door dinners are cool.

these are good for the youth group [teen think tank]

more mission trips, community work, and more time to hang out, eat and have fun

just hang out a lot

go do thing out of the youth house

hang with our friends

go on mission trips

Group activities require many people we can't have only a few of the people showing up so we need to plan ahead of interesting events, so that people will show up to the events we have planned and will participate.

we need to let the youth give ideas and give them time in youth activities to do
