A word from Ken ...

It is my life’s goal to equip and encourage youth leaders to change the world through effective youth ministry. For too long we have tried to win this world for Christ through entertainment, purposeless activities or mindless games. We have adopted strategies in youth ministry that actually work against us rather than for us. This world does not need us to provide entertainment. It needs us to show it life and life to the full. We have underestimated the power of young people to take Jesus Christ seriously. We have meekly accepted the fact that most of our youth will fall away or are disinterested in reaching out to their friends. This does not need to be the case. We need youth ministries that are committed to Christian disciplines such as Bible study and prayer. We need to structure and shape our groups to be Christian communities that build strong followers of Jesus. We need to build youth ministries that are solid and long lasting. We must learn to run a youth program that is solid in content, builds good community, and is highly enjoyable at the same time.

It is my hope and prayer that this website will be a help to you and those in your care.
