Youth Ministry is a fundamentally theological task

“Youth ministry would do well to acknowledge that it is a fundamentally theological task. It attends to divine action: it seeks to do its work in a manner that is faithful to (and strives to articulate) God’s action in the world.

Youth ministry is a uniquely theological task that examines how divine action connects to human beings in the first third of the human lifespan.”

The Future of Youth Ministry

YSmarko has a post and link about the future of youth ministry. What will it look like in 50 years? I think that it’s interesting to think about the future of youth ministry. Marko makes some interesting observations. Anyway, be sure to check out the discussion over at his blog.

By the way…here’s my post about it on my family blog.

Jesus Camp

What do you think about the new movie “Jesus Camp?” It’s a documentary about a group of kids who go summer camp, and it’s an interesting view of how Christians are viewed in general. I’m interested in knowing what people think of the trailer. So here it is. Check it out, and then comment on it.

From the apple website where the trailer is: “A growing number of Evangelical Christians believe there is a revival underway in America that requires Christian youth to assume leadership roles in advocating the causes of their religious movement.”
