Adolescents

“Adolescents: Who they are and How to Minister to them”
That’s the topic of a conference I’m supposed to give tomorrow for 40 youth workers. I have an hour or an hour and 20 minutes to speak on the topic. It’s going to be a crazy time. Some of the things I’ve got in mind:

Who they are:

  • Definition of adolescence
  • Characteristics of adolescence
  • Needs of adolescents

How to work with them:

  • Accept them.
  • Work to understand them
  • Realize that it’s going to take time.
  • How to start the ministry

Those are my preliminary thoughts. I’m sure I’ll get more by tomorrow afternoon. Please pray that I do.
