Don’t look for children’s Sunday school classes at Ridgewood Church in Port Arthur, Texas. And forget about scavenger hunts and water park trips: the youth ministry is no more. Sound like a dying church?
No, it’s a family-integrated church, whose leaders wanted parents — rather than Sunday school teachers and youth ministers — to spiritually train their children.
In “Divided,” a controversial video circulating online and a related book called “A Weed in the Church,” the movement’s leaders warn that “unbiblical” age-segregated activities can lead youth away from the church.
I saw this video and I really thought you would enjoy it. I did
There are some things I think I would add but It was a great
video (especially since I had not made one about keeping
ourselves spiritually strong)
What about YOU? What steps would YOU add to this video?
What are some things YOU believe EVERY Christian
Leader should do to stay spiritually strong and effective
I saw this posting on the churchemarketingsucks.com website and I thought it was just plain GREAT!
We continue to miss the mark with young adults and teens in church, and there are a number of reasons why.
Ty, in the article below, clearly articulates why many of the approaches, we think should work, don't work.
I want my grandchildren in the Kingdom period! If I have to change my approach to reach them, so be it.
I just CANNOT and WILL NOT change the message. That position is non-negotiable and non-adjustable.
How do you feel about what Ty has to say?
Are you offended or motivated? Do you think he is right?
Tell us what you think after your read his plea.

There are some things that just get to me.
When I leave the Taco Bell drive through knowing, without even looking into the bag, that they have messed up my order.
I certainly don’t like it when I end up shaking hands and it was supposed to be a fist bump. That’s just awkward.
Those are little.
What seriously gets to me is when there is a lack in how the church talks to us. Especially as a teenager in high school, I couldn’t feel more neglected by the church at times.
