Why We Do What We Do…

“Families, churches and parachurch ministries must recognize that primary window of opportunity for effectively reaching people with the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection is during the pre-teen years [age 10-12; 5th-7th grade!]. It is during those years that people develop their frames of reference for the remainder of their life – especially theologically and morally. Consistently explaining and modeling truth principles for young people is the most critical factor in their spiritual development.” 

-George Barna

 

“My suggestion for youth pastors is to take half of their budget and put it into fourth- through seventh-grade ministries, training kids to be healthy emotionally and to think critically about their faith. It’s critical to find a balance between relationships and substance. Both are needed. Youth workers also might consider assigning a healthy adult couple to six or eight kids in order to model for them a healthy, happy and fulfilled marriage or other type of mature relationship.” 

-Josh McDowell
