The Program Problem- Kurt Johnston

7 Nov

Kurt on November 5th, 2009

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

My working definition of youth ministry “programs” has always simply been: The stuff you do.

It seems as if there is a fairly strong resistance to programs in many circles of youth ministry today. Yet, by my definition this means they are against doing stuff, which I know isn’t true.

So….is my working definition wrong?

Are youth pastors really against “doing stuff”?

If youth pastors aren’t against “doing stuff”, but they are against “programs”, what then are they doing, and what do they call it?

Is what they call it, just another word for “programs” or is it really something different, better, etc.?
