5.Collaborate with various ministries for the purpose of ministering to Middle School students and parents.
6.   Recruit and build up a Leadership Team, equipping them to serve, then mobilize them to do ministry (evangelism and discipleship).  Must have an understanding of a delegating team approach as seen in Exodus 18, Acts 6, and Ephesians 4:11-12.
