Youth Ministry Article

There's an article on youth ministry in the current issue of Time Magazine. You can click the link below.

It's a great article. Time says what I've been trying to tell people recently. Youth ministry is not about trips and concerts and Six Flags and whatever else we've focused on the last 25 years. Those things are OK, but they are not youth ministry. Don't be afraid to get your teens into the word of God. Don't be afraid to teach your kids to pray. Don't be afraid to instruct your kids in doctrine. They want it. They come to church for answers and we spend all our time and energy entertaining them and pacifying them. Anyway, this is worth passing around your church.
