The need for theological questioning in youth ministry [podcast]

LIVE Youth Ministry TalkLast Monday we talked about the need for theological questioning in youth ministry. Our featured guest was Jake Bouma, a youth pastor who even named his cat after a theologian!

The discussion we had was one that every youth worker needs to recognize and consider because the implications can run very deep for the teens in our ministries.

Some of the things we talked about:

  • Why it’s important to help kids wrestle through their theological questions
  • Common questions our youth group kids are asking
  • How to help teenagers process through the questions
  • The balance between spewing answers and encouraging the self-discovery process
  • And a whole lot more…
