Reports circulating online suggest that large numbers of evangelical Christians are skeptical that youth ministries are effective – or even Biblical. Yet thousands of American kids (and their parents) are involved with the local church youth group, and some families won’t consider attending a church that doesn’t have one. Are these common branches of church life a good thing, a bad thing, or something which can go either way? In this episode, we share some positive and some negative things we’ve seen, and hear from our adult son John Calvin Young about youth ministry done well — and conclude that maybe the question is not Yes or No, but more When and How to organize separate events for young people in the church!
