Most youth pastors and parents would love to see their teenagers sharing their faith with unbelievers on a regular basis. We spend time and money training them, encouraging them, pushing them, and even taking them to events like Dare 2 Share Conferences. But despite all that investment, the number of kids in our youth groups who are actively sharing their faith is usually pretty low. Why is that?
What is one of the main contributing factors that cause kids to not only share their faith, but to see their friends actually make decisions for Christ? Of kids who share their faith on a regular basis, what do all of them have in common?
There’s actually been some research about this and in this video blog post I talk about some of it and what it means for us and our youth ministries.
