Is Modern Youth Ministry Unbiblical?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Neil @ 7:00 am

That’s the claim that was made by Scott T. Brown, director of the National Center for Family-Integrated Churches.  I encourage you to read the entire article.

Here’s a few of his quotes:

“Modern youth ministry is also inherently destructive in its impact. It divides the church by creating generational division and multiple cultures instead of a unified ‘body”

“This slippery slope of age segregation leads to the isolation of an individual’s perspective to one that only looks outward from within the confines of their age group and excludes the lessons that can and should be learned from previous generations,”

“I hope that we are now at the end of this 50-year failed experiment,” he stated. “We now have almost three generations of children who had no father who walked beside them but a youth group instead. It is obvious that half a decade of youth group does not produce young people who are passionate about the church.”
