A Critique of Youth Ministry

I was a youth pastor for many years – mostly in Canada.  For an excellent critique of youth ministry – I highly recommend the following  article of Christopher Schlecht:   http://www.christianaction.org.za/articles/critiquemodyouthministeries.htm.  I think that he has some very good points.

Personally – I am against separating too much the youth from the rest of the congregation.  It encourages a “perpetual’ immaturity.  The same goes for kids who are not taught to stay in church and listen to the main message.
