Questions for Reflection


  • How can we help our senior youth and young adults discover their spiritual gifts?
  • How can the church incorporate senior youth and young adults in positions of leadership?
  • Read the following excerpt: "If we segregate the youth, not only do we lose all they have to teach us, but we also inadvertently teach them that the church is really only for adults—those who are married and have families of their own. And then we wonder why they don't get involved in church as college students or young singles, when in reality, we've been telling them all along that the church isn't yet for them." ~ Mark Howard in “Youth Need the Church, and the Church Needs Youth”The Gospel Coalition, April 30, 2012.  What are the dangers of not involving senior youth and young adults in church life (worship service, leadership positions, etc.)?
