The one thing that will revolutionize your youth ministry is if they get involved in evangelism. So many youth programs are oriented toward entertaining young people but it is impossible to compete with Hollywood and Disney Land. They will always be able to do things bigger and better. So why play a game you can’t win? The one thing that the world cannot provide is the thrill of ministry. Serving others will bring a dynamic and excitement that cannot be fueled any other way. Evangelism is the one thing Christians do that no one else does.
One of the great services of the IFCA International is their youth ministry resources. It is based on the principle of “encouraging and equipping youth to be the church today.” Notice that statement carefully. They are not the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today. They can serve right now. Teens can evangelize like anyone else in the church. Check out their resources at: http://ifcayouth.org
