Being Missional: Youth

The best way to reach people, especially teenagers, is to spend time with them; enter into their world. this requires both time and committment. It means giving of my time to do things that are important to teenagers; attending school sporting events and activities, helping them do things like school work, driving lessons, etc. That requires sacrifice on my part. Connecting with the parents and showing them how to be missionaries in their own community is also vital. It's not about just having Bible studies at their homes, but being involved in the lives of their children and their friends. Sometimes kids need someone outside of the home to talk to.
