Often This is the Big Problem for Youth


Interested in the reality of youth ministry? Youth, in general?

The following quote is from No Guts, No Glory (Matthias Media).

It is, quite simply, the first book I recommend to youth pastors.

I wish parents and “senior” pastors would read it.

Any veteran of youth work will nod and remember, probably with tears, particular teens who were negatively impacted not by drugs, sex, or rock-and-roll…but by parents.

Read it if you dare:

“Unfortunately, it is sometimes Christian parents

who tell their teenagers that they do not have time for proper involvement

in Christian activities, because they need to be studying, learning music,

training for sport, or whatever it is.

This reflects a problem with the Christian life of the parents

rather than the teenagers;

it is what we want for our children that really

reflects our values in life.“
