Consumers or disciples?

Royal Mission’s next two training days will focus on discipleship among teens and youth. This theme may not sound very challenging or even ‘corny’. Yet we are convinced that this should be the focus of all youth work, especially today! discipleship2We come to many churches and municipalities with our training and coaching evenings. We meet passionate youth workers again and again. Beautiful people! Some of them are regularly tired of the programs and youth services. Because if you don’t pay attention, you very quickly become a ‘slave to the program’, while your power lies in being a ‘slave to Jesus’. Discipleship has little to do with programs or services. Discipleship is a relational process in which spiritual parents invest enormous amounts of time in spiritual children. It is raising children and that takes time, mountains of time. But giving all that time to cool and flashy programs only produces consumers. Teenagers who let us know at the end of the evening whether it was ‘fun’ or ‘boring’. discipleshipParenting does not consist of fun outings to amusement parks and cinemas. Parenting is sharing your life, energy, time and money with people you believe in and care for. When you realize that, you immediately know that you can only coach a few young people at a time. Sharing your daily life with God with a small group of young people. It is a slow but steady process of raising people to spiritual maturity. We hope that you can attend our training day. But what we think is even more important is that you consciously invest in discipleship! Talk about it with your club leaders, put it on the agenda in your teen work, raise it with your church leaders, … let’s go for discipleship. That was the big assignment, right?!
