  1. Liberating Teens from One Conformity to Another

    Liberating Teens from One Conformity to Another

    The pressure to conform is enormous these days. Young people (teenagers), in particular, are targets of the “conform to the latest worldly philosophies and trends or be an intolerable outcast” mentality that permeates the culture. The easiest thing for our teens to do would be to just play along and fit in. But conformity to the world is a death trap, plain and simple. Therefore, Christian parents, and the church as a whole, must do everything possible to help our young people toward a radically different type of conformity. ... More

    Heart-Focused Classroom Management – Part 2

    Discipline is helping children to grow, not controlling behavior. It is a long process that needs to be mostly positive in nature, but firm and loving. So, relationship building is incredibly important. Managing a classroom—keeping it under control, is something we can do the first time we ever walk into a group of children, and maintaining a well-run classroom achieves another goal—training our children in righteousness: ...

  7. Why Sing in your Sunday School Classroom?

    Why Sing in your Sunday School Classroom?

    Many Sunday school classes incorporate a time of singing in the morning schedule. But often the main purpose and goal of this time is not so readily grounded and communicated within a larger context of children’s formal biblical education. Why do we sing? What do we sing? In what manner do we sing? These are all important questions that should be addressed and should serve to transform this time into something of greater significance than simply singing songs, filling time, and engaging the children. ...

  10. Why They Need a Robust Training of the Mind

    Why They Need a Robust Training of the Mind

    Consider these statistics that author and parent Natasha Crain notes in her article, “What Your Kids Need for a Confident Faith”:

    61% of kids who were involved in church as recently as their teenage years become spiritually disengaged by their 20s—not actively praying, reading the Bible or attending church.This finding, based on the extensive surveys of researcher George Barna, is the alarm that has sent pastors, youth leaders, and young adult ministries desperately searching for answers. Multiple independent groups have since conducted their own studies and have identified the same trend—with some estimates of those turning away from Christianity as high as 88 percent. Why is this happening? Having studied the various survey results in depth, I think it’s fair to summarize the collective problem in one sentence: A lack of robust spiritual training has resulted in a featherweight faith for many of today’s young adults, and that faith is being blown away by attacks from our secular culture. ...
