Our Students Are Poised to Create Change. Start With Teaching Students This…

As youth leaders and parents, we have to help students experience what it means reflect the love of Christ—through experience—it’s how they are wired to learn. It is what is necessary if our students are going to thrive and create change. You don’t need a new program or some complex system, you just need a few simple steps. Let me show you what I mean.

How the Simplicity of the Gospel is the Perfect Remedy for Such Complex Times

There’s no question our lives have been a little out of sorts lately. We have seen the articles and heard the news. We have seen the hardship of so many around us and have watched the disappointment in our kids—first school, then activities, then an abnormal summer and now massive uncertainty with the fall approaching.

Making Disciples Means Building Relationships

Our effective witness to others as followers of Christ is so much more than just communicating the gospel when given the opportunity. It’s more than just talking about Jesus and asking another person to “accept” Jesus. Effective disciple-making requires the formation of a relationship—even if that relationship is only for a small moment in time. It requires us to listen to another’s story, their concerns, objections, frustrations, and questions—and to do so with gentleness and respect.
