PLEASE LEAVE US A ***** FIVE STAR REVIEW ***** ON I-TUNES!
An interview with Brad Griffin!
So much of youth ministry is built on programming, hype, and fun. But under the surface of all of that great stuff lies the existential workings of the teenage mind. That’s where we need to go, and where we go in today’s episode.
What are teenagers really thinking about? What are the deeper questions they are wrestling with? A new book from Fuller Youth Institute digs deeply into this subject and supplies us with a simple framework from which to have better conversations with the students we love.
Brad Griffin, co-author of the book, is on today’s show. Brad is the Senior Director of Content for the Fuller Youth Institute, where he develops research-based training for youth workers and parents. A speaker, writer, and volunteer youth pastor, Brad is the co-author of over a dozen books, Faith in an Anxious World, Growing Young, several Sticky Faith books, Every Parent’s Guide to Navigating Our Digital World, and Can I Ask That? Brad and his family live in Southern California, where he serves as Pastor of Youth and Family Ministries at Mountainside Communion.
And what are the 3 big questions?
Who am I?
Where do I fit?
What difference can I make?
This is fascinating and insightful conversation you may even want to share with parents in your ministry. At the very least, you will want to read the book and get it into the hands of your youth leaders and families in your church.
