About the Book

Maturity (local church discipleship/ministry), and the Great Commandment (intentional worship & loving your neighbor as yourself)! Thus = Great Commission Youth Ministry.

I am writing a new book about young people who God used to minister alongside Him in his work as described in his Word, from Genesis to Revelation. At the moment of this writing, my research has revealed at least 37 (and still counting) young people who God acknowledged in His Word who were used to do his ministry on earth, — including the majority of the original 12 apostles! It is an amazing study! And, as I thought about a Great Commission Youth Movement, while doing the research for the book, I began to conclude that the Great Commission has really ALWAYS been a Youth Movement!

What we need is a revival of that Youth Movement in this century. I have always said, “If the Great Commission is to be fulfilled in the 21st century, it must by-and-large become a Youth Movement.” I think that now I should add that it should become a Youth Movement AGAIN! But I want to get back to the question – What is a Great Commission Youth Ministry in the local church? What should such a church youth ministry look like based upon the definition: “It is one that balances The Great Commission and the Great Commandment within all its Strategies and Programming”? What would it take to transform any existing local church youth ministry into a Great Commission Youth Ministry? The KEY is the word BALANCE!
