“Modern man, perhaps now more than ever, needs teenagers to understand himself and to face with renewed depth his own existential questions.” (ECyDbook)
What is Youth2Change?
This is simply how I “showcase” ideas on youth ministry born out of prayer and reflection on the many, varied experiences I have had in youth ministry. For now, you can expect an article every 3 weeks to 1 month, that´s it!
“Almost every longing related to youth ministry is connected to a single desire: We want to change something.” Mark DeVries, in Sustainable Youth Ministry.
I title this “Youth 2 Change” because of its double (2) meaning:
- As youth ministers, parents and youth mentors we seek to change the youth: lead them to Christ and accompany them in their own journey. Hence, we see teens as the object of ministry.
- The youth are called to be leaders in their own way, and thereby change the future of the Church and this world. Hence, in this case, we see teens as the agents of ministry.
