Church with no Young People

Helpful article on how a Church might start to re-engage with young people.
Written by James Ballantyne  (but also read the helpful additional comment at the end from Arkle Bell)

“The encouragement of this piece is to think about what one thing you can do in your church to start thinking differently about young people, to start thinking about young people at all, and begin again. It is possible. Trust me”

Young People and Mission

Loving this approach to mission training and experience  in Baltimore.

“It’s not a typical approach to Christian missions and outreach, but it’s a critical part of The Center’s work. An innovative mission program launched seven years ago by the Presbytery of Baltimore, The centre hosts church groups from throughout the United States, connecting them with Baltimore churches engaged in outreach ministry in the city. At The Center, the volunteers not only do good works; they also immerse themselves in the theology of missions and the social and economic roots of poverty and race”

Soul Survivor

It was quite a surprise to see that Soul Survivor will end in 2019 as it has been part of the youth ministry landscape since 1993.  Good to see the wisdom and courage involved though in discerning that it was time to stop.

“Right from the start of Soul Survivor, we always said that when God told us to stop, we would. We believe that time has come, and we want to be obedient. We’ve always been humbled by the amount of support you’ve shown us, and so we know some of you may feel sad about this decision.”
