If things are going as they should, we should have new Christ-followers in our midst. Some ministries will have more than others but by the very nature of our role, we should be seeing teenagers come to faith in Christ, or getting serious about their faith for the first time. I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few years thinking about these new Christ-followers (I wrote a book specifically for new believers you can sample at the end of this post) and the spiritual needs they have. New Christ-followers have at least four basic needs.

God has a plan for your life. I believe Scripture offers overwhelming support for this statement, both in individual verses and in specific narratives of individuals. Discovering when it the right time to move or to wait is no easy task. Now, we can have some fun theological conversations about how this actually fleshes out in the life of a believer. But I wanted to take a quick moment and offer some insight into one aspect of God's plan for our lives. How do we know when to take action and when to wait?

It's become one of our favorite traditions: bringing in the new year on the YM360 Blog by remembering the highlights of the year that was. As we looked at our analytics from the past year and drilled down to find the most-read posts, we saw that one thing these articles have in common. They deal with the area of Discipleship. This is super encouraging for us, as it shows the amazing passion the YM360 Community has for seeing teenagers draw closer to Christ.

Communication is changing faster than we can type, “hashtag blessed,” and as the youth minister, you’re probably considered the most technically-savvy staff member at your church. There are so many different ways to communicate and so many different people to communicate with. Where do you even begin?

Opening this week, “I’m Not Ashamed” is the powerful, true story of Columbine High School student Rachel Joy Scott. Growing up, Rachel knew the love of God, but she wasn’t always ready to receive it. At times her faith was on fire, and at other times it was at odds with her everyday life. But after praying, “Father, use my life to touch the world and let your light shine through me,” her renewed commitment to Jesus played out compassionately and powerfully at her high school, and around the world.
