How to Make a Can

For the past couple of days I have shared a little about how we were prepared at the staff training center at Michigan State University.  I mentioned packages a couple of days ago, shelves and cans yesterday.  Cans are simply different ways of sharing a topic.
Here is some guidance on preparing to help people in their walk with Christ...  Thoughts at DTTB.
It might be helpful to share the outline of a “package.”  It was:
  • Topic
  • Objective
  • Motivation
  • How to Get Started
  • How to Keep Going
  • Evaluation
You may need a bit of explanation on a couple of those.  Topic is self-explanatory.  Objective – needs to be written in terms of the behavior that the package is attempting to create.  Motivation – is what you would share with the individual to explain why the behavior is important.  How to Get Started – is the first exercise you would share with them.  How to Keep Going – is a list of activities/tools that you may use to keep them engaged in the discipline, read “cans.”

The evaluation is what you are looking for to see that it has become a part of their life.

Make sense?  Let me know if you have questions.
