Our Student Ministry just did a big Fall Kick Off Event. All the new students that just became old enough were invited and because we’ve grown a lot this year, we had even more students show up for the first time. The team pulled off a high energy event that they called “Glow Night”. Anything that could glow, was glowing that night. Even the band. I walked in to drop off my girls and encourage the team and I was blown away by what they had pulled off with honestly not a very big budget. As I saw all the kids having an absolute blast, I thought “Oh shoot, I wish the video team was here tonight capturing this”. No sooner did that thought cross my mind did I see one of our video team out in the middle of the crowd getting some great shots. Check out this recap video they made of the event. We shared it on social media and people loved it. Videos like this help parents know that Student Ministry is pretty awesome at Mosaic. Don’t spend a ton of time creating an awesome event and then forget to capture photos or video of it for future or current use. Even if it’s all volunteer based, do something with that stuff.
