Local Church Ministry to Students

The Gospel Coalition is producing an ongoing series on Student/Youth Ministry. We all know how messy this ministry can be. It is messy because the lives of students are often messy. It is messy because often you have a high mixture of saved and not saved in the age group, and many of the not saved don’t know they are not saved. It is messy because worldly tactics have heavily influenced student methodologies. It is messy because parents put pressure on those who minister to the students to make sure their kids are never bored. It is often messy because we have forgotten to rely on the Holy Spirit, and instead rely on our own creativity. For all of these reasons and many more, we all would be instructed by reading more on this subject. Check out the following articles:

Youth Need the Church, and the Church Needs Youth

Why We Need Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry’s Tendency Towards Legalism

MTD: Not Just a Problem with Youth Ministry

Victoria’s Secret Model Transitions to a Proverbs 31 Wife

Kylie Bisutti dreamed of modeling for Victoria’s Secret. And in 2009, her dream came true as she was selected from 10,000 models to work for the company and model lingerie. However, Bisutti, a Christian, began to be convicted about her profession. She also was recently married, and this too played a factor in her decision to move away from lingerie as she felt it did not honor her husband.

You can read about her story here.

In the Hours

Thou the Father’s best beloved,
Thou the throned and sceptered King,
Who but Thee should we adoring,
All our prayers and praises bring?
So blessed are we Savior Lord in loving thee
So blessed are we Savior Lord in loving thee
 

Words by Helen L. Parmelee, altered by Kevin Twit. Verse 5, In the Hours
