??????????As a youth pastor, I am constantly evaluating how our student ministry is maturing students into lifelong ministers of Jesus Christ. However, this article asks, answers and gives some great diagnostic questions to a slightly different question. “Does this youth ministry contribute to the development of lifelong members, servants, and leaders in the local church?” I recently gave this article to all our youth leaders and am looking forward to feedback from them as well as any of you.

Enjoy and as always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
