A Video Training Series: Meeting Students on THEIR Turf

February 1st, 2017

One of the things the church has failed at for yeeeaaaars now is thinking just because the doors are open students will show up. This is NOT the case anymore. There have been periods of time in church history when this was absolutely the case. When I was in youth group, just offering pizza and kickball on a Friday night would have everyone in the community there. No more! Now leaders and student ministers must go to where students are.

Watch the video above to hear more about meeting teens on their turf.  We can no longer expect them to come to us.
