Thank you for your interest in the Spiritual Game Plan Curriculum!
Thirteen years ago, as I watched my husband coach our daughter’s elementary basketball team, I noticed something.
I observed them run plays over and over, memorize the name of the plays and what position they needed to be in while that play was being run. Knowing that she would soon be in high school I thought to myself, I wish we could send them off with a spiritual playbook.
Knowing that instruction from mom would just be another lecture I decided to see if any of our upperclassmen from the Christian Academy would be interested in mentoring. I was excited when two names were given to me and those students were willing to mentor the middle school classes.
With the support of both the Academy and the elementary school the format was developed, and this week of prayer has been one of the highlights of the school year for both campus’.
This is an intentional discipling program. There is a specific scope and sequence that I walk the academy students through. I want them to experience God using them to make an impact in the lives of those who are younger and who look up to them. It has been so rewarding to watch the elementary students become the upperclassmen who then go back and touch the lives of our next generation of mentors.
Preparing our middle school students to what challenges they will face in high school and giving them the tools to recognize the opponent and have a plan a head of time gives them strength.
Watching our high school students mentor and teach that plan is powerful.
I see the tools that they are preparing to teach turn into a solid belief, becoming a part of the foundation that they will continue to build on.
