‘What would happen if we gave teenagers opportunities to serve and use their gifts in ministry prior to high school graduation? What if we poured into these young leaders, discipling them and doing ministry alongside of them, helping them grow spiritually, seeing and experiencing God working through them? What if we eased back on our ministry to students, supplementing it with ministry by students?’ These compelling questions are at the heart of Ministry by Teenagers, and once authors McKee and Smith lay out the ‘what ifs’ they combine their collective experience in youth ministry to provide a practical and detailed guide for ‘how to.’ The book is jam-packed with ideas, advice, and resources for: – Fostering discipleship – Building student leadership teams – Identifying student talent – Helping students discover and use their spiritual gifts – Creating service teams – Equipping students to reach their friends It’s a must-have tool for youth workers who want to tap the gold mine of talent, passion, and leadership potential they see every day in young Christians.

Making Disciples at Home

Make disciples. That is what Jesus has called the church to do. As parents, he has entrusted you with children to raise and nurture in the gospel. Because of these two realities, healthy student ministries aim to partner with parents to make disciples of the next generation. Disciple-making should be the lens through which student ministries plan and evaluate…

Who Are Mission Trips About?

It’s an important question to ask: When teenagers go on a mission trip, who is it about? Is it about teenagers leaving their home to serve and grow elsewhere? Is it about a community full of stories of strength and struggle? Mission trips can pull teenagers out of their comfort zones to engage in God’s story…

How do you disciple students who have ZERO touch points with Christianity?

Our students are increasingly living in a post-Christian world and this means that they have a worldview and moral outlook that has almost zero touch points with Christianity.  If that is the case, then how do we share the gospel and disciple students in the new world?

A Welcome Fall for Change

Every fall, nature reminds us that change is beautiful.  Beyond the fact that I can wear the most wrinkled shirts ever and cover them with an appropriately sized hoodie or sweater, I really enjoy the fall season.

Using the Creativity of Students

Think about the students in your ministry right now. How are you engaging their passions and creativity? My youth pastor in high school was always a one-man show. Every Wednesday night, my youth pastor would be the pre-service prayer leader, the chair set-up person, the sole greeter, the prayer leader, the worship leader, the game…

Engaging a Generation of Millennials

“God has no grandkids,” my mentor used to say.  What he meant was simply that no one enters the kingdom merely because their parents were Christians. They must encounter the gospel themselves and respond to it. In youth ministry, we are driven by a passion that every generation needs the gospel. We know that youth…
