Rational and Respectful

Youth WorkSome people feel threatened by Christian youth work. For there, they see childhood and adulthood mingled in such fragile vessels. Young bodies in the process of change, youthful minds grappling with questions they are forced to find answers for. Boys wanting to be strong, dependable men, but melting inexplicably into childish immaturity. Girls wishing to be poised, attractive young ladies but turning without warning into sniggering clumsiness. One moment they are rational and respectful, the next they explode into some playful pursuit.

Choices in Life

Youth work exposes a perplexing crossroad of decision facing young people. What to do in life? Where to work? Whose values to adopt, one's family's or one's friends, the church's or those of society? In the face of this, it's no surprise that some people back away from Christian work and in particular youth evangelism. Only those who are bold enough to venture out despite the problems find the wealth of golden opportunities awaiting them.✞
