In my ongoing rethinking of how we approach ministry to students, I have come across a great article written by Walt Mueller, the President of The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding.

Read the article here.

In it he gives 13 ways to effectively reach today's postmodern youth culture, many involve changing the ways in which it has "always been done." I appreciated his calling to continually evaluate our approach.

He states, "While the content of the Word always remains unchanged, the way we do ministry should be constantly evaluated. There is no room for sacred cows. If the message isn’t getting through because of dated methods, new ones should be prayerfully sought and adopted in order to effectively communicate the Good News. However, we must adopt only those methods that are faithful to the unchanging Word. And we must never assume that methodologies can do what only relationships can."

May we never get so trapped in our methodology, and even traditions, that we fail to see that continued evaluation is needed.

Thoughts??

    I'm reading a book called, "The Hidden Power of Electronic Culture," by Shane Hipps and his thesis seems to somewhat condtradict the idea that the message stays the same while the methods change. His premis is that the method changes the message so we need to look at the methods we're using for communication and make sure we use them correctly in a way for our benefit. It's quite interesting so far. I haven't finished it yet, so that's the best summary I have for now.

    Here's a link to the book:
