ReachStudents Director Transition

Shane Stacey has stepped away from his role as the national director of EFCA ReachStudents, ending his service on August 17, 2018. President Kevin Kompelien and EFCA leadership are deeply committed to the raising up of disciples and leaders among the next generation.

Aug 22, 2018

Giving leadership to ReachStudents, Shane has strengthened a disciple-multiplying focus within EFCA student ministries for the last decade. The Lord has called him to once again love a particular people in a particular place. Therefore, Shane is transitioning to serve at a local church in the Twin Cities area in the role of Adult Equipping Pastor.

Shane will continue to serve the EFCA family by raising up trainers and coaches for the Building a Disciple-Multiplying Culture cohort which is one of the EFCA’s Transformational Cohorts.

President Kevin Kompelien and EFCA leadership are deeply committed to the raising up of disciples and leaders among the next generation.

  • An interim team is in place to lead the ReachStudents National Council, to assure the continuation of collaborative work and partnership through district and regional leaders.
  • A team has been created to assist President Kompelien in the hiring of a new national ReachStudents director.
  • The annual Trainer’s Training in disciplemaking competencies is scheduled to be held in the fall and online training resources are available on the EFCA website.
  • Disciplemaking Coaching for student ministry pastors will continue through regional networks and Virtual Disciplemaking Learning Communities.
  • Registrations for Rebound 2018, a renewal retreat for youth pastors/directors and their spouse, to be held in November are filing quickly.
  • Apex Missions has a strong team leading the way in raising up gospel influencers through opportunities being offered in 2019.

The EFCA is thankful for Shane’s decade of service, and we are grateful for his continued involvement with the Transformational Cohorts. We look forward with anticipation of the next season of student ministry together among youth and those that work so faithfully with them.

Join us in praying for Shane in this transition and for the hiring of a new ReachStudents director. If you have questions regarding the transition, please contact ReachStudents@efca.org.
