The Benefit of Being Faithful

February 14th, 2019|FP Success Story, Local FP Communities, Student Leaders|

Do you often wonder if faithfulness really pays off? In a culture built on immediate satisfaction and the pursuit of comfort, it seems to be a value that has fallen by the wayside. But, among God's people, it is a virtue worth guarding and worth displaying. Many students come to mind when considering this, but one in particular [...]

The Best Day Ever

February 7th, 2019|FP Success Story, Local FP Communities, Student Leaders|

Last week we talked about letting students lead. Sometimes, leading can be something simple. It doesn't always have to be someone standing up in front speaking. Students can lead by being a good example to those around them or simply sharing something with someone just like this middle school student did in Birmingham, AL. Read [...]

I'm sitting at home on a sunny but very cold January day with my kids who are home from school due to the NO snow we got here. Life in Tennessee for you. I told my kids I had to work still even though they were home for the day and I am battling a [...]

The Power of a Testimony

October 3rd, 2018|FP Success Story, Student Leaders|

You never know who God is going to use to bring people to Him. So many of us think that we could never share something so powerful that it would lead others to Christ. But you don't know who's there listening and who needs to hear exactly what you have to share. So thankful for [...]

Your Story

September 20th, 2018|Church Leaders, Community Leaders, Faculty Sponsors, Priority Parents, Student Leaders|

Have you ever thought about the role that stories play in your everyday life? Stories help us understand things that other forms of communication cannot. Stories sometimes become the way we understand ourselves and the world around us. Did you go to a theater to see any movies this summer? Obviously, the movie was itself [...]

Training Student Leaders to bring H.O.P.E to their School

August 22nd, 2018|Faculty Sponsors, FP Tools, Priority Parents, Student Leaders|

Students are on the greatest mission field in America: school. Engaged in the middle of the “game,” students are the players we are here to train, pray for, and support, just as we do for foreign missionaries. First Priority clubs follow a four-week strategy called HOPE.  HOPE is an acronym for Help, Overcome, Prepare, and [...]

The act of saying “yes” to Jesus causes the “fruit of the Spirit” to come through us! The ninth fruit we are focusing on is SELF-CONTROL. It is difficult in the world we live in to not give in to those things around us that pull us in many different directions away from who we [...]

The act of saying “yes” to Jesus causes the “fruit of the Spirit” to come through us! The eighth fruit we are focusing on is GENTLENESS. We serve a loving God and He has many ways of gently leading us forward. Psalm 119:105 says “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light [...]
