  1. Yes – I immediate thought of another thought that has stayed with me for a while now – How do you expect a young person to develop an adult faith by continually surrounding him/her with other youth.

    And of course if we keep using the same strategy we’re going to get the same results !

  2. Dave –

    I don’t really think your comment has much weight to support it. I could, in the exact same logic, ask the question “How do we expect a young person to develop an adult intellect by continually surrounding him/her with other youth?”

    Following your resultant logic the answer would be mass educational reform preventing the establishment of demographic cohorts (no more separation by grade and age), because they prevent young people from advancing in their knowledge. But that isn’t true nor the answer, and neither is it true nor the answer for youth ministry problems. There are pastors and leaders after all, just as school has teachers and the like. Assuredly the age separation is not the problem with the strategy.
