AFLC Youth Ministries exists to win teens to Christ, to build them up by God's Word and God's love, to equip them to live and to share their faith, resulting in the multiplying of maturing teen disciples of Jesus.
To encourage youth leaders and caring adults in this pursuit, each month AFLC Youth Ministries features three ideas:
- * Moment of the month features our fun youth ministry finds, you will see everything from movie trailers to magazine ads to YouTube videos.
- * Link of the Month features a recommended youth ministry site.
- * Taste of the Month features a taste of training or something we think would be worth you to nibble on for sharing Jesus with this generation of youth.
Check em’ out and enjoy!
Moment of the Month
Axis: Apathy to Action
I am new to the following resource, but AFLC Youth Ministries’ Board Member Rev. Eric Rasmussen showed me a preview of these materials. They are biblical, thoughtful, and engaging for teens. The 3-minute video “We Love Churches!” on this link summarizes their efforts to assist parents and ministry leaders.
Link of the Month
National School Project
In January, I was introduced to a member of the National School Project. This organization is seeking to establish Christian clubs in public schools across the country with the purpose of creating a campus awakening to the love of Jesus. More concentrated in California and Illinois, their vision is to see what the Lord has done in those two states spread across our land.
Taste of the Month
YWW Resource & AFLBS Campus Days Seminar
Our friend Tim Herset shared at YWW 2018 the concept of “Leadership Trees” which was a helpful visual to think through with whom you are investing your time. Tim found the Young Life Podcast that describes it. Check it out!
On Saturday morning, March 17, Pastor Jason Holt will lead a seminar on “Christ & Culture” during the workshops at AFLBS Campus Days. The Schools have kindly invited AFLC Youth Ministries to once again be a part of their spring event through this particular session for parents and youth leaders. The seminar will examine thinking through the challenges that arise with inviting teens to follow Jesus in a complicated culture.
