When a tidal wave occurs, the water is first drawn out for miles revealing plants, rocks, and sea creatures. It also reveals all the things that don’t belong in an ocean: garbage and wreckage. And then the wave comes.
2020 was the year of a big reveal in many aspects of our lives. It was also a year of a reveal in youth ministry. When business-as-usual came to a screeching halt in our ministry we felt so much loss. What also happened was, just like with a tidal wave, a reveal of everything that was under the surface included some things that didn’t belong there in the first place.
As we look forward with cautious hope to preparing for in-person ministry again, what was revealed that we need to let go of? How can we use this moment to reevaluate how we do ministry with young people?
Let’s not just “get back to normal”.
Because we believe that a tidal wave of grace is coming for and by Gen Z in the Church.
Joshua Danis and Jordan Biere from Alpha and Annie Grandell from YDisciple out of NET Ministries bring their voices and unique perspectives together for this limited series podcast to talk about how we can begin to shift our mindset in youth ministry.
