Theology in Youth Ministry?

I agree with Mike King on this. Many times I'm asked, "How many?" When maybe it should be, "How many questions did they ask?

The Importance of Theology and Theological Reflection in Youth Ministry - Mike King: "Church leaders and members are perplexed by decades of accumulating and overwhelming data indicating that the Christian church in North America is failing to form disciples among adolescents who stay connected to their churches.  Church leaderships first question about youth ministry is often “How many youth came to youth group this week?” followed by, “Did they have fun?” which is indicative of the reality that we have gotten way off course.  This is more than a youth ministry problem – this is a broader church problem."
