As youth workers, we are called to enter the relational world of teenagers… joining Jesus on his mission to break down dividing walls.
Back to Basics: The Beauty of the Ordinary in Relational Discipleship to Gen Z Students
With a prevailing attitude of love that seeks to see and understand our students, we become a wordless witness that frames and reinforces the very gospel message we speak.
The word church in the New Testament literally means “the gathering,“ which tells us something about what he intended it to look like.
Love Incarnate follows the Spirit’s lead in every scenario, refusing to apply a one-size-fits-all approach to relational engagement.
Apart from personal relationships which prove to us that we are seen, known, and sought out, it’s hard to believe God sees, cares, and acts for us. We need other people to help us believe.
Spending time at students’ events helps us remember that we are not simply pastors in offices, but shepherds called to nurture the flock entrusted to our care.
If the goal is that our students would come to believe the gospel of Jesus – that they are known and loved by the King of the Universe – they first need to feel known and loved by us.
