Strong churches acknowledge the developmental differences between adults and children and lovingly accommodate the youth. Parents are always primary, but where parents are unbelieving or when supplementary support is needed, the rest of the church comes alongside families in the discipleship of children. Strong churches are intentional about equipping and empowering adult volunteers for discipleship environments geared towards children and youth. Strong churches call youth to worship and discipleship at an early age, recognizing that through the history of our faith, young people have meaningfully engaged in God’s work (e.g. Samuel, David, Mary, Timothy, etc). Strong churches see children and youth as a strategic mission field in their city and prioritize justice and mission for this important demographic.
