Could Your Home Be a Youth Outreach Center?
I believe that one of the essential jobs of the local church is to equip Christian parents to take the lead in spiritually training their children. Passing faith to our kids is not the church’s job – it is ours.
But what about all the unsaved kids who don’t have Christian parents to disciple them? Sadly, our modern youth ministry methods are not very effective. We can get a ton of kids or teens to attend an awesome event, but precious few come to Christ and grow in Him for a lifetime.
I once gathered together my team of ten paid youth ministry staff and asked them a question: “Can you give me the names of students who have come to Christ in this last year?”
