In student ministry, we are going to fast forward this year to the Finish Line (end of the year). Determining how you want to finish will impact how you start. In order to run through the finish line spiritually strong, you need to know how to start and how to run the race... you need a coach... you need a motivator... you need a pep talk... you need to hear from Jesus... Matthew 10... Check out each message below to find out how you can finish strong by starting with the end in mind.

Week 1 – Elevate Launch (download)
God had a calling for Jeremiah, and He has a calling for your life. Have you answered God's calling? In this message, Nathan compares American culture to the Israelite culture of the day. Both were moving away from God. However, Jeremiah 4:1-3 gives us a formula for how we can return to God. Check out a highlight clip below, and click the link above to hear the full message.
Week 2 – Decisions (download)
Looking back to last school year, did you tell/show your friends about Jesus? Did you take faith steps for God? By starting where we want to be at the end of this school year, we can begin to take steps for sharing Christ and taking faith steps right now! Here's a clip from the message, or you can hear the entire message by clicking the arrow above.
Week 3 – Relationships (download)
Nathan discusses the importance of having godly relationships. In order to succeed in life, we must remember to love people over programs, and an investment in people is an investment for eternity.
Week 4 – Self-Image (download)
Whether you believe it or not, your actions speak louder than words. So the question is not do my actions talk, but rather WHAT ARE MY ACTIONS SAYING? Listen as Nathan shares a message from God's Word on the importance of living LOUD for Christ because we're children of God!
Week 5 – Team Jesus (download)
Part of what makes a team great is that a group of unique people are united together for a common purpose and mission. For the early New Testament Church, their mission was simple... bring glory to Christ in every way possible. What's your goal this school year? What's your mission? Are you united with other Christians to bring God glory? Listen to this powerful message that Nathan delivers from the Bible.
