It doesn’t matter how young or old, how fit or disabled, how many of how few, how academic or intellectually challenged your group is. When you minister under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, God moves!
Tips and tools
How do we make cross-cultural connections and show that the message of the Bible is just as relevant for us today, as for those people who lived over 4000 years ago? It is possible to teach in such a way that our listeners can identify with, and care about, characters in the Bible.
What are our teens getting into these days? How can we keep up-to-date with their culture? Young people are under enormous pressure from their peers to fit in and follow the hot trends seen in media – movies, TV, music, games and apps. Fads come and go, but we can stay aware of our kids’ culture.
If you feel your ministry needs to be revitalised and more productive, this is for you! Whether writing a sermon, planning a Sunday School lesson, organising a youth talk or preparing a small group Bible study − focused prayer during preparation is the key.
