Quick Thought: How Do We Wake up the Youth Leaders?

Work with your youth pastor and come up with a basic theology test. Collect the tests, and then look at them. The typical Christian kid is going to fail that test miserably. Hopefully that will help our youth leaders and parents to wake up to see that our kids don’t know more than “love Jesus and be good.”

You can role-play with the students, and let the youth pastor see that the students can’t answer some of the most basic questions and challenges.

Another thing I would suggest is to read Soul Searching by Christian Smith. It gives a snapshot of where our young people are, and it’s not good news. Hopefully, when our leaders and parents see that, it will wake them up to see the importance of seriously training our young people.
