Building Young Believers Through Adoration

In this youth ministry equipping and training series we are exploring ways youth ministry workers and leaders may actively participate in Jesus’ disciplemaking ministry patterns—partnering with the Holy Spirit to seek the lost, nurture believers, equip workers and multiply and send shepherd-leaders.

In the previous article we began a series exploring ways to nurture believers using a set of powerful tools we refer to as CANS (community, adoration, nurture and serving). We started with community; in this article we explore adoration.

Building Young Believers Through Community

In this series of articles, we have been discussing strategies for advancing healthy youth ministry in and through our youth groups and congregations. Ministry is far more than programs—it involves relationships where young people, assisted by caring adults, come to know and embrace God through a life of faith in the presence of a living person—Jesus Christ.

Back to the Future of Youth Ministry

Youth ministry is a very slippery topic. It is difficult to even pinpoint its origin because youth ministry has yet to be well-defined. I spend a lot of time these days off-campus, speaking to youth leaders, training volunteers, and consulting with various church boards and committees about youth ministry.

Intergenerational Ministry

People today are often lumped into categories based on the year they were born, and assigned labels such as the Greatest Generation, the Silent Generation, the Sandwich Generation, Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y and Millennials. Demographers and marketing specialists have created additional sub-categories within these groups, which can make tracking the interests, habits and values of a particular sub-group a science in itself.
