Remember folks: Education without action is entertainment! ACT ON THE WORDS OF OUR LORD! Do not be a member of the sit-more-do-little Church.

This is an awesome message by Greg Stier if OUTREACH Magazine! Here is the problem for many Churches: They have very few youths attending, or none at all. I KNOW! I SEE IT! I call it the lack of a ‘feeder system.’ In baseball we call it no farm system. You gotta have youth to have a future in anything! The youth in America is our future as Country! How is your Church doing with training up our youth? No youth? Why not? What will your Church look like in 5 years? What is the average age of your members? If your Church is mainly made up of the 60 plus crowd and they are not brining their adult children, and their children to Church you have a problem!

“A farmer went out to sow his seed.” Luke 8:5

For decades, youth leaders have been like farmers. They chuck the seeds of the Gospel to their youth group, during outreach meetings and at camps, retreats, and mission trips. This is the way it’s been since youth ministry sprung into being.

And praise God for youth leaders who’ve faithfully sown Gospel seeds all these years. Millions have come to Christ as a result!

But there is a better way.

It’s not a newer way but the ancient way. It’s the way Jesus trained His disciples. And it’s powerfully demonstrated in the first the book of Luke, chapters 8, 9, and 10.

In Luke 8:1, Jesus was the primary seed-chucker, and the twelve disciples watched Him sow Gospel seeds from village to village:

“After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom of God. The Twelve were with Him.” More Here
