A note to you, an awesome youth worker:
Here at YM360 we think a lot about how to help you lead teens closer to Christ. We work hard to support and equip you in this journey of helping teens become more like Him, and we know you want your students to become more like Christ. In fact, becoming more like Christ is a pretty good definition of discipleship. But how do we as youth workers lead them in their journey? While the path we use to get there may differ slightly from church to church, the Bible paints a pretty clear picture of what a disciple looks like.
We poured through the Bible searching for these descriptions of disciples. What resulted is six specific traits that all disciples have. By thinking about these traits as a goal of sorts, you can begin to think about what it takes to see these attitudes emerge in the lives of your students. We're thrilled to share these with you today in a free 22 page eBook (pdf) that explains each one of the six discipleship traits, shows how Scripture supports them, and challenges you to consider how effective your youth ministry is at seeing the traits realized in the lives of your students.
This is just the beginning of some pretty awesome resources we're working on to help you implement these traits effectively. In the meantime, please let us hear from you if you have any thoughts or feedback. It's a real honor to partner with you as you lead teens closer to Christ! Keep up the great work!
