Patricia--


Thanks for taking the time to post your question on the Sunday School Page! It is good to hear that your church has "growing pains," and that you have experienced youth workers available to lead your teens. I asked our Minister of Youth and Education, Jeff Hiett, to respond to your situation. Jeff leads our youth division of about 100 teens in Sunday School, as well as various other weekly and seasonal youth activities. Hopefully we will get some additional advice as others respond.


It is difficult to diagnose a problem from the few details you were able to put in the discussion posting, but we'll try to give you a few suggestions about things to think about and try--realizing that some of them may not really apply to your situation.


Let me remind you that the most important thing to do is to pray about your youth program. Ideally, you could get your staff, youth workers, and a few key youth to commit to pray--either getting together, as prayer partners, or at an agreed time.


Here are Pastor Jeff's observations:



Jeff's summary is "Youth don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."


Let me add a few administrative suggestions--


Hope that helps some. Let us know if any of this leads to further questions.
