Programs Versus Relationships!
There is a debate in youth ministry circles that say Programs = Bad! Relationships is what is what it is all about. This is so far off. See the lies listed here
Programs are a tool.... in which relationships can start.
Relational based ministry goes beyond programs but have to start with some sort of impact.
If we expect to ADD more glamour and gimmicks to build people to a relationship with Christ -we miss the goal.
The goal really isn't our relationship with anyone. sorry as much as community is a good thing ... the whole urban legend that youth ministry is about relationships is just an urban legend - just the same as it is about programs.
The goal is Jesus. Plain and simple. Youth pastors and youth workers can't replace parents. Youth workers can't replace Jesus. All we do is point people to well - Jesus.
