Making Disciples of Whom? Christology and Youth Ministry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The National Study of Youth and Religion and more recent research shows that many students in our own youth groups do not believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only way of salvation. They no longer believe in the historic Christian faith, but rather their “faith” is a smattering of quasi-religious fumes, endured with a hefty back story of tolerance, that rides on the nationality of the metanarrative congruence of all faiths. One can certainly do youth ministry from all three pluralism platforms: historic (Jesus is the only way), modern (Jesus is a good way, but there are other ways), or postmodern (who cares about religious dogma; it’s not important anyway), but the this-world outcomes are very different. This session explores in what respect a historic Christian Christology is vital for actual disciple making youth ministry, as well as for youth flourishing.
