If you're going to work with students in a PG church, it’s important that you understand the point of youth ministry in the first place.

Key Points:

  • The goal of youth ministry is helping students become disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus.
  • The center of youth ministry is the student group.
  • The role of youth ministry is partnering with parents to disciple their students.
  • Your commitment as an adult leader is to mentor students and lead a small group.

Quote This:

Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
