Why Confession Belongs in Your Youth Ministry with Vince Greenwald

“It is far more dangerous for our churches to be places where students hide sin than where students confess sin.”

In this talk from Rooted 2023, youth pastor Vince Greenwald encourages youth pastors to make confession a regular part of their youth ministries. Rather than teaching students that youth group is a place to maintain a false image of perfection, Greenwald urges youth ministers to cultivate a culture of honesty. Amid safe and honest confession of sin, the gospel really begins to “get traction” in students’ lives.
