Intro by Eryn Aubey, Christ in Youth

Whose on this episode? 

Justin Herman Host

Kurt Johnston Host

Matt Deprez Fuller Youth Institute

Jonathan Morrow Director of Cultural Engagement and Immersion at Impact 360 Institute

00:37 Welcome

01:15 We talk about Joel Olsteen

05:11 Teaching Topics

24:31 Matt Duprez, The Importnace of Grandparents

44:40 Jonathan Morrow, talking about Generationn Z

Teaching Topics with Justin and Kurt

  • If you could only teach 3 topics (and the first 3 don’t count)

    • Identity
    • Sex/Dating
    • Spiritual Gifts
    • Wisdom (Justin)
    • Life of Christ (Kurt)
    • Misunderstood people of the Bible (Justin)
    • Fruit of the Spirit (Kurt)
    • The “other”—a mission series on how to make disciples (Justin)
    • Choices and their consequences (Kurt)

Matt Deprez (Fuller Youth Institute)—Grandparents faith on young people

  • Proximity Matters. Faith does not go up if they are closer but it does increase faith maturity—it skyrockets if they live with 50 miles.

    • Technology can replace proximity in a way. Video chatting is huge and do it to eat meals together.
  • Grandparents shaped issues of identity, belonging, and purpose rather than spiritual discipline
    • You develop properly being around experts and that applies to faith too
  • Faith modeling is HUGE
    • It will shape the maturity of the child.
    • Reading the Bible and serving constantly helped and led to better conversations
    • Send pictures, stories, and verses if you do not live close 

Jonathan Morrow—Generation Z 

  • The first “Post-Christian” generation

    • 10% Boomers, 7% gen x, 6% millennials, 4% gen z have a Biblical Worldview (Barna)
  • Oldest Gen Z is just heading into college. 2x likely as adults to identity as atheist. 34% are “nones”. 58% agree there is no one true religion
  • “How I feel” and “what is true for me “is their default response—they are Christian relativists
    • Change from feeling questions to thinking questions
  • Find a way to disrupt them.
    • Use provocative questions
    • Get Christianity back into the realm of reality
  • We need to have as sophisticated conversations in church as they are having online. There is age appropriate ways to handle these conversations.
    • We want to help walk them to good answers.
    • We cant just say nothing or they may “outgrow” their faith

Discussion Questions:

  1. If you could teach any topic what would it be?
  2. How are we utilizing the grandparents in our church?
  3. Are we using “feeling” questions or “thinking” questions for our group questions?
  4. How do we make our environments to make students feel welcome?
  5. How are we disrupting their rhythm?
  6. Are we having sophisticated conversations with our students?

Topics for this episode: 

Did we mention we have Patrick Lencioni !!!!!

  • Most of our listeners are younger leaders, many leading a team for the very first time. Give them your "#1 DO" and your "#1 DON'T".
  • Change is hard.The President of Fuller Seminary said “people don’t fear change they fear loss” So when taking over a role at a church give us some advice about how to implement change roll out an effective change management strategy.
  • In your book, 5 Disfunctions of a team, you make the case that TRUST is the very most important quality among a team...so lack of trust is the biggest disfunction. How might you equate that with building trust with young teenagers and their parents in a church setting?
  • Define the difference between Mission and Vision?
  • In your experience, what would most teams identify as a primary source of discouragement?
  • You seem to be a genius at taking big, hard to tackle, leadership issues and boiling them down to easy to grasp and implement ideas and principles. Your books are short, but loaded with truth and pragmatic leadership gold. Give us a few tips on making our message simple and easy for our audience (young teenagers) to grasp.
  • What do you do in a situation where you have more practical experience than your boss.  Most Youth workers report to people who have never done youth ministry.
  • Sometimes we cast vision, but then struggle to implement it.  How can we be great implementers of vision.
