Beginning Youth Ministries Larry Chappell YM 103 Lecture 1- A Biblical approach to Youth Ministry Thought for the day: The world says, “youth for pleasure, middles age for pleasure, old age for religion.” The bible says, “youth, middle, and old age all for God” Section 1 - Theology and Methodology of Youth Ministry Theology drives methodology The goal of youth ministry is to make disciples who will make disciples. How do we make disciples: Evangelism- Acts 2:1-41 Discipleship-Acts 2:42a – discipleship is relationship Fellowship- Acts 2:42b Worship- Acts 2:42c Service- Acts 4:43-47 Section 2 - The birth of Youth ministry, the arrival of Modern YM 1780- Sunday school begins in England 1850- YMCA 1920 Sunday school is integrated into U.S churches 1941- young life – teen-ager appears for the first time 1949- youth for Christ 1970- the youth pastor Approaches: 1.

2. Age specific approach- separating youth by age or grade Parents think they are not qualified to teach their children the Bible 3. Family integrated approach- do away with youth ministry all together 2/3 of parents did nothing outside of youth ministry/Sunday school of teaching their children about the Bible. There are some problems with this approach, as there needs to be both parents to be truly successful The gospel has the power to change people not ministries or programs. Healthy church healthy families. The primary responsibility for raising godly children rests on the parents. Ephesians 6:4 Deuteronomy 6:5-7 Section 3 “A change from behavior, that does not stem from a change in heart, is not commendable, it is condemnable” 1. Provisional approach- aka the babysitting approach, the mindset is to keep the teens out of the way somewhere; or as someone once called it a “holding tank with pizza” 2. The attractional approach- to keep them entertained, “what will the teens like?” heavy on fun, light on faith. There is nothing wrong with finding out what the teens are interested in, but the trouble comes when that’s the singular goal. 3. Organizational approach- to just keep them busy, 4. The relational approach- to just be their friend. This approach is especially harmful because although it is beneficial to have some sort of friendship with the young people in the ministry, it is harmful to be “too friendly” to the point that they are not reprimanded for their actions.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
