This resource is part of the Self-Care Outreach Collection.

Spark Self-Care Spiritual Conversations

Students are being told to prioritize their self-care. Our bodies, our souls, and our relationships are all gifts from God. We are all invited to trust God with all of these important parts of our lives. This outreach campaign will help you reach students both on campus and online with this good news.  

The self-care proxe* (in-person) is a collection of interactive visual displays that are designed to spark spiritual conversations on the important topic of self-care and offer Jesus’ invitation of rest, joy, and peace. Included you’ll find full instructions, a leader's guide, and training on how to set up and lead this proxe.

*A proxe is a set of large, interactive visual displays meant to start spiritual conversations on campus (with passers-by, both strangers and friends). The term proxe is a made-up word that we use for interactive art displays that lead to the Gospel. In the last year, we’ve created Insta-Proxes, which brings these fun spiritual conversations online.
