How do we get students involved in the bigger picture of the church?
Is it the lack of structure in our church
Is it on us as youth ministry staff?
Is it our fault?
Is it their fault?
Does student ministry always have to be seen as a silo ministry?
We often forget to include youth as a part of the planning of our church-wide activities.
The ministry of most churches is doing for students and not doing ministry with students.
“I forget that it is my responsibility to invite students up”
When was the last time you created a structured opportunity for students to connect with adults?
Take the time to teach your congregation to ask students questions. Help them navigate the relationship cues.
"Youth ministry has hurt the church in the ways in which it has not created good relational opportunities for adults and students to connect."

"Everything changes when you are invested in the life of a student."
