Resilient youth root their identity in Christ. They are lifelong learners who face challenge by turning to God’s living and active Word.
An understanding of baptismal faith is critical for youth. Resources encourage youth to live as forgiven sinners with the promise of eternal life in Jesus.
Churches should provide service and leadership opportunities to youth so they can serve while making meaningful contributions to the community of believers.
A culture of warmth, challenge, and grace is characterized by displaying Christ’s love for all people in the church, especially pre-teens/junior high youth.
Supportive adults play a significant role in walking alongside youth. Resources encourage investment in youth and long-term relationships.
Junior High ministry gives young people a chance for age appropriate Christian education and Christ-centered connection with peers and supportive adults.
