Just a Thought (youth ministry)

Few groups of people are a greater hindrance to the proclamation of the gospel then young adults who were raised in church on a steady diet of foosball, pizza, and empty lessons about self-image taught by men who care more about what kids think of them than whether or not kids know Christ.

My time on college campuses brings me face-to-face with the fruit of American youth ministry. Granted, there are some solid, Christ-centered youth ministries; but I fear they are the exception, not the rule.
