This is so true. Constant contact is the only way to produce meaningful fruit. But we need to be careful that we measure our success by the time we spend with God, not the fruit we produce. Christ never commands us to produce fruit - he commands us to remain in him. If we're constantly looking for a specific fruit but then growing discouraged we're not seeing it produced through our ministry or our lives, we'll quickly burn out. Success is based on contact with Christ, not a desire to produce a specific fruit.

Remain in Him, first, foremost, and only!

Tim, sounds like you guys have a bunch of fun and great stuff going on for the summer. I’m wondering what you do for leaders? Some of the pre-scheduled events might have leaders coming to it, but what about the spontaneous things? Do you ever worry you’ll have an event and then have 10-15 (or way more) students show up? Is there ever a worry about supervision or lack-thereof?

This is my first summer coming out of a ministry year (1 year in baby!) and I’m a little terrified of chaos… ha. Just looking for some insight into that!
