Theology of Youth Ministry

Foundations for a theology of Youth Ministry by Chap Clark
1. There is a creator God who is on the move to find those who are lost (Luke 15)
2. God’s heart is decisively compassionate towards children and young people (Mark 10:13ff)
3. God loves people enough to invade human history via the incarnation (Phil. 2:5-11)
4. Followers of Jesus Christ are likewise called to love and pursue those whom God loves, and are therefore called to “go” into the world of the young (John 17:8)
5. The message of the Gospel, focussed on the Incarnate Word brings hope and healing to every person regardless of race, culture, ethnicity or age (Romans 10:12-13)
