Making youth evangelism obsolete

I had a crazy thought recently. I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be awesome if youth evangelism was made obsolete.

Here is the reasoning behind such a strange suggestion.

Youth evangelism is based on the fact that there are youth (i.e. teenagers) who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus. So, if all children were follows of Jesus when they reached high school. Then all youth evangelism would be obsolete.

This is of course a completely unrealistic, unattainable and unSMART goal. But I think that it is a cool thought. Wouldn’t it be awesome if the role of youth ministry changed to discipleship only due to the fact that kids are already committed followers of Christ.

Not a practical goal, but I think it is an inspiring vision.

    I definitely think you hit a key word in regards to discipleship. Jesus great commission was to go and make disciples.
