If you’re new here, welcome. A few years ago I wrote a book called The Disciple Project: Raising Up A New Generation of Doers. If you asked me then why the book was important, I would have said, “because the church does a bad job of connecting, following up and investing in new believers.” Sadly, this has not changed neither in adults or in youth ministry.

If you ask me today why the book is important, I can’t think of a better answer. Youth Pastor’s have to do a better job of connecting education and learning.

Eduction is you teaching the Bible.

Learning is doing the Bible together.

Take a look at The Disciple Project for yourselves and ask, “Are my students’ connecting their belief in God with what it means to follow Jesus?”

If the answer is no, then The Disciple Project may be for you?

Interesting conversation about Christian Hip Hop, Teens and Outgrowing the Faith.

This is a hot new show about teens on the reservation. It’s everything you think it is.

I love this video so much, for these reasons 1) the “youth pastor” is not who you would expect 2) simplicity 3) authentic Youth Ministry does’t have to “look” cool to be cool or to please God.

Is it time to introduce yourself or reintroduce yourself to your youth ministry parents? Warren does an excellent job of this as well as spelling out the plans for the youth ministry.
