Cultivating Faithfulness

  • Steve Angrisano, Steve Angrisano

We work hard to cultivate faithfulness in our youth, but faithfulness to what? Often, unintentionally, it's faithfulness to our program. Of course we want everyone to meet Jesus, we just prefer it to be at 7pm on Sunday nights! In fact, the most accurate predictor that a faithful young person will become a faithful adult is not a good youth conference or weekly attendance at RE. The most accurate predictor of lifetime faithfulness is daily prayer. How can we, as ministers to youth, cultivate both in our young people and ourselves…a greater daily awareness of and devotion to God. This might be the most important shift you can make in your ministry. The mission of the church is not to bring all things together in youth ministry, but to bring all things together in Christ! How can you do that more effectively? Come and find out.
