From time to time I post a question that comes into the blog for YOU to answer. What advice would you give this youth pastor who is asking about teaching/discipling checkpoints in their youth ministry. Weigh in!

I have encountered over the short time I’ve been in ministry a host of students that either have gotten a dose of poor theology or have many many questions that if they are believers (which most say they are) they should have a solid grasp of…I’m not sure how you do it, nor do I think there is a cookie cutter way to do it, but I’m seeking advice on how to build our Jr. High ministry from the ground up… I am wondering if maybe I should come up with 6-7…10 things that every student must know before high school? Maybe the concepts and some insights from the book of John, and James…answer critical questions like…

  • What is salvation?
  • How are we saved?
  • Who is God?
  • What is the church?
  • What is sin?

What would you say? Weigh in!
