Students Passionate for God

One of the hardest things about student ministry is cultivating a passion for God and His Word. Most students either have too much to worry about or they just don't care. We say that passion for God is the most important thing, but it isn't lived out in the lives of the members of the church. Because we don't model what it means to be a Christians, Christianity becomes another extra-curricular activity like football or Key Club.

The Possible Solution:
1. Long-term discipleship
2. Church Members Model
3. Parents Model
4. Prayer
5. Correct Selection of Friends

Here's where you respond. What are some other possible solutions to creating a passion in students for God and His Word?

Welcome Back?

Sorry for the long delay, sometimes you just need a break. The building project at our church is now complete you can check out some pics of the new youth room here. Also I just got back from vacation in Michigan so I am now ready to get back in the groove of things.

It feels good to be back. I hope to be blogging on a regular basis. One thing that I realized while I was away was some of the serious stuff that is talked about on some blogs is just too much. I will express my opinion but I don't really want to get into long drawn out arguments as I have in the past. I hope to have a little fun and interact with my friends.

Here's to life, Here's to friends, Here's to knowing God more every day.

Oh, and by the way. Kristi and I are having a girl. She is due around June 26th. Her name is Sydney Elisabeth Gotcher.
