Meaningful Youth Ministry and Leading the Next Awakening

Here are two of my recent blogs that have caught a lot of conversation.

Meaningful Youth Ministry – Context Is King
About the four sectors of meaningfulness in a teen’s life: Cultural, Personal, Religious/Theological, and Family.

It can be easy to stay within the confines of the Church. But, meaningful Youth Ministry is present where teenagers live. Meaningfulness is intentional, relevant, and relative to the setting that youth live in. Much of ministry is just showing up and being incarnate.

Is Youth Ministry Ready To Lead The Next Great Awakening?
About the difference between Program-based and Presence-based Youth Ministry and which one could impact The Next Great Awakening.

Here are 2 principles we must understand if we are going to prepare teens in the American Church to lead The Next Great Awakening.
