In Real Time: Authentic Young Adult Ministry as it Happens

I’m in the process of reading an enlightening book on young adult ministry. It is written by Mike Glenn who is the senior pastor of Brentwood Baptist Church near Nashville, TN. Mike teaches at Kairos, the young adult ministry that meets every Tuesday night.

While I haven’t yet finished the book, I love his insights into our current young adult culture. The more I read it the more I’m saying, “Yes! That’s right!” I will leave some quotes on the blog as I continue through the book.

“While they [young adults] may not know what kind of father or husband they should be, they know what kind of father or husband they don’t want to be. They may not know what kind of mother or wife they want to be, but they know what kind they don’t want to be. Abandonment is a huge issue for this generation. So the young adult knows only, “I don’t want to live like that.” The problem is you can’t live against. You have to live for.”
