Developing an Intentional Discipleship System: A Guide for Youth Ministry

Select Medium

A church may not see many young people from their community enter their church building. Yet, statistics say that young people are out there… but where? As Junius Dotson notes in Developing an Intentional Discipleship System, “The problem is not a lack of people. The problem is our inability to see and reach them.”

The key component to an intentional discipleship system with youth is the answer to the “Where are they?” question—not where are they hanging out, not where do they spend their  time. Rather, where are they in their journey of identifying and solidifying their beliefs?

When we ask that question from this new perspective, it opens the door to re-imagining the inputs and outputs of an Intentional Discipleship System.
