Every youth worker wants students to grow closer to Christ, to be like Jesus. But as youth workers lead and develop relationships with students how can we be sure that students are becoming like Christ and not simply like us? Are you really into social justice, or love sports, or really into experiential worship, and find that your youth group is really into those things too – that doesn’t happen by accident, but is that the best for the youth? This workshop will present ten easy-to-implement practical tips to help youth workers make sure their students are most centered on Christ.
