Here are some articles, blogs, and podcasts from this past week that you may find helpful as you work with young adults in your church and community.
“Expect More from Young Men” by Jim Hamilton
Hamilton presents the idea that our culture has lowered the bar for young men today. As followers of Christ, we are to expect more from young men in a world that needs them to step up.
“Are You Ready to Lead These Young People?” by Tim Elmore
Recent political movements around the world have been fueled by those under the age of 25. Elmore gives some insight on the reasons young adults are stepping up to have a voice and how older generations can be a guide to them along the way.
“The Cicada Invasion, the Book of Esther, and the Hidden Work of God” by Michael Kelley
Sometimes we wonder if God is working in our ministry with young adults because we might not see much movement. However, as young adult ministry leaders we must continue to be faithful to the call God has on our lives to invest in the lives of young adults. Kelley points toward the need to be faithful even when it’s hard to see what God is doing.
