What is your mission?

You can wander for years in kids, youth, adult ministry and never actually have a plan? What is it simply put you are trying to accomplish? What are you trying to accomplish in students lives and what is your simple plan to get there. If you don't have one, you will waste years, resources, leaders, youth and your own time.
