Jon Nielson has written an article for churchleaders.com outlining three common traits shared by youth who keep their faith.
Here’s a summary:
1. They are converted.
We need to stop talking about “good kids.” We need to stop being pleased with attendance at youth group and fun retreats. We need to start getting on our knees and praying that the Holy Spirit will do miraculous saving work in the hearts of our students as the Word of God speaks to them.
It is converted students who go on to love Jesus and serve the church.
