Adult-Centered Youth Ministry

I sensed the Lord directing us to “raise the bar.” A truly Biblical and Christ-driven approach can and must form the core for a revolution of our youth and in my opinion any youth ministry today. And that core is this: the overall objective in youth work must be to lead teenagers to Christian maturity (1 Tim 4:12). If we are not leading them to mature Christian adulthood, we are spinning our wheels, spending a lot of money on activities and staff, but ultimately are failing to accomplish God’s objective for teens: maturity that leads to adulthood.

 

I will try to point out in the paragraphs to follow what we are doing here at MPBC.  What I sincerely hope to detail is a process for leading teenagers to Christian maturity that involves at least four basic commitments on our part as a church.
