There was a philosophy that I heard stated in different ways when I was in youth ministry and every time I heard it, it always drove me a little crazy. That philosophy was something along the lines of “if you can win the quarterback, you will win the school.” And whether stated or unstated, it was the basis of most of the youth ministries I observed. Tons of energy was poured into reaching the cool kids.
This is a fantastic blog (my opinion) from a good friend on frustrating trends in church planting.
Do you think he is accurate, is he missing something or is he just a frustrated "hipster"? :)
