Student Run Churches Video

Students can not only plant churches, but lead a church planting movement!

I found this out on a recent trip to Manila, the Philippines. This short video is of the Melvin, Pastor of Stillwaters Church, casting vision and describing what his student led and planted church is doing.

Melvin’s heart and the model of truly entrusting and empowering young leaders with real roles and responsibilities is incredibly encouraging.


    • definitely! the amount of ownership, vision, and leadership i saw was tremendous.

      often times staff can get in the way of empowering for a variety of reasons–by committing to launch and lead w students it places staff in the empowering/shepherd role, guiding and directing but allowing young leaders to flourish.
