We at Fusion want to help you grow in your calling and develop as a practitioner in Student Ministry.
This is why we love hosting spaces where Student Workers can connect with each other, share what's working, and challenge one another to remain both sharp and creative in their approach. It's important to be a part of wider community of people seeking to reach and disciple this student generation where we can learn together and encourage one another.
Student ministry is a large and diverse field with relatively few workers, so as a Student Worker, or someone committed to investing in students, you play an exciting and crucial role in helping students find hope in Jesus and home in the local church. This means those of us on the ground need to employ both tried and tested best practice as well as creative, innovative ideas to welcome, disciple and release in mission each fresh arrival of students.
WITH THAT IN MIND, FUSION WILL BE HOSTING A SERIES OF FREE 30 MINUTE WEBINARS, THE DETAILS OF WHICH ARE BELOW.
We will be covering a range of student ministry topics, designed to equip and encourage those in church-based student ministry. These will be hosted by Fusion team with an experienced student work (and/or topic-relevant) practitioner.
Each webinar will be half an hour, with a 15 minute TED talk followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. We will be doing the same webinar twice in a week, but at different time slots on different days just in case you are unable to make one. So sign up here and you will receive a confirmation when you've got a place.
'Mission Impossible? Helping secular students meet Jesus' with Dr. Ruth Perrin
In a highly secular, hyper-individualised and sceptical Covid-shaped culture it is hard for many young people to even believe there IS a God, never mind that He might love them or that they might live their life for Him. We will take a few minutes to open the conversation about why and how a generation at “theological ground zero” might meet Jesus and have their lives transformed.

'Diversity and Student Work' with Paul Eaton and Aaron Nayagam
The breadth and depth of the student body represent numerous ethnicities, nations, and languages spoken. But does our student work reflect that? More than ever, we hear God’s call to reach every tribe and tongue. More than just talking about diversity, join us to consider what it looks like to include, integrate and reach the nations of the world on our doorstep in student towns and cities. Join us to pray that God continues to dismantle division, racial bias, and imposter syndrome in and outside of the Church.
Monday 15th November - 4.30-5pm [SIGN UP]
