Youth Ministry

Faith

We had a neat service Sunday, one that really stretched me as a youth leader. The youth praise band did a great job with the music and some of the youth shared and encouraged each other. I then spoke about why youth ministry is important. But here’s the catch, I really just wanted to speak from the heart so I

For any of the Cornerstone teens stumbling across the blog, I wanted to let you know that Sunday the youth are leading the worship. We want to focus the entire service on the youth, so you will have an opportunity to do some sharing. Be thinking about what God is doing in your life. Be bold, be courageous, be bowflex

This is from a while back, but it is interesting to watch. Ron Luce is the founder of Acquire The Fire and the BattleCry Conferences for Christian teens. In this video, a very liberal feminist tells why Christians are bigots and fascists. What I really got out of this clip is how we are not reaching the postmodern world. I

I wanted to post a few pictures of the Cornerstone Youth. We had a good time. The turnout was low, but it was worth it. Todd Shaw really challenged the teens to make this a defining moment in their life and live all out for God. He had some crazy stories about jumping his dad’s station wagon on his bike

I love to read, so here are some books that have really got me thinking lately. I think it is incredibly important for Christians to continue learning and stretching their minds with Biblically relevant and challenging books. Click on the books to find them at Amazon.

The new American way, if anything happens bad, then sue. Don’t you think this is the type of thing that could be worked out between two friends. What do you

Just got done with a youth praise band practice. Everyone rocked it out tonight. My neighbors probably were wondering what the heck was going on in my basement. Luke was jammin on the drums, Faith was strummin the acoustic, and I was joining in on the electric. We worked up two songs, Grace like Rain by Todd Agnew and Majestic

Do you remember the scene from Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade where Harrison Ford is standing on the edge of the cliff, trying to decide what to do? His guidebook that his father gave him, tells of taking a step of faith. So Indy believes, and is willing to step out and trust that he will get across. When he

Not that it suprises me, but MSNBC reports that… Dirty song lyrics can prompt early teen sex: “Teens whose iPods are full of music with raunchy, sexual lyrics start having sex sooner than those who prefer other songs, a study found.”

… was the title of my message in church yesterday. I shared the trap that so many churches fall into of focusing inwardly and losing their passion to serve outside the 4 walls of the church. I was in Acts chapter 1 for the third straight message. Acts 1:8 is a great verse to look at whenever we study methodology.
