For more than 10 years I have served alongside my friend Roger
Glidewell at Global Youth Ministry. While serving with him, I started referring to him as THE WHY GUY. Before launching into any endeavor (whether business, ministry, or personal life), Roger would always want to know the WHY before doing the WHAT.
That is great model for all of us. When we stand before God at the end of our lives, He’s not going to ask, “Were you like the church down the street?” or “Was your youth group/church the biggest in town?” or “Did you have the coolest stuff?”
Instead, His question will sound more like this: “Did you do what I asked you to do?”
So before we launch in to doing the WHAT, we must ask ourselves WHY. Are we doing what God has told us to do in His word? Or are we just following the latest fad, program or hype?
In a generation that focuses on programs and plans, let’s rely on the principles of God’s word.
If you are interested in digging into the WHY’s of Youth Ministry, consider attending Global Youth Ministry’s Momentum3 conference. It takes place annually and there is still a few spots left for this weekend! Click here for more information!
