This is a bonus just for the youth leader—a quick tip and an illustration to enhance your youth leadership. You may already know this idea, have learned it through trial and error, or just need a quick reminder.


Children who grow up in the church often memorize the correct answers to questions about the Bible or spiritual matters. By the time they enter adolescence, the challenge becomes personalizing those responses so they match the young person’s experience rather than that of their parents or Sabbath School teachers. A key part of the job description for a youth leader is to help teens find Jesus for themselves. Sometimes an adult who isn’t currently parenting a teen can have a fresh approach to this compared to a faithful parent, who may have grown used to teaching teens a different way.
