When kids come to your youth ministry could it be mistaken for something else?
Could it be mistaken for a club for only the cool kids?
Could it be mistaken for a YMCA with great activities?
Could it be mistaken for a TED talk where kids just sit and listen?
Could it be mistaken for an elevator where strangers occasionally stuff themselves to get to an emotional high?
If you want your youth ministry to be unmistakable..
invite the poor, the naked, the broken and the stranger
have activities that go beyond game nights and bowling that serve others.
preach not only to inform but to transform and invite kids to respond
use small group(s) to get kids to connect and make that ride to the top memorable
Your youth ministry will never be mistaken for anything other than God’s church if Jesus is at the center, disciples are being made, kids love one another, forgiveness abounds and, ultimately, God is glorified.
