>Do We Need Youth Ministry?

>If insanity is repeating the same thing and expecting different results, the style and strategy of “typical” youth ministry needs careful examination, focused prayer, and probable readjustment.

But the need to present the Biblical gospel to youth (and younger children) is stylistically evidenced here:

Author: Jack Hager

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

One thought on “>Do We Need Youth Ministry?”

  1. >That points to the importance of putting forth truth in the home at the earliest possible age and maintaining the nurture of children in the fear and admonition of God until God indicates the time for the release of the child to a counsel status. Ideally, Youth Ministry begins in the godly home and is carried on in the godly home with supplementation elsewhere as God leads until the time of starting another godly home arrives. God bless those who reach out to those who have no such opportunity and minister to youth as He leads.
