After going to the Forge Conference (read post below) i've started wondering about what the future of youth ministry will be. Here's what i'm thinking at the moment. Currently we all run very program based youth ministry. Even though we know there is so much more to what we do we are still spending large amounts of our time running and maintaining programs. Like for example, we have evangelistic programs, discipleship programs etc.

But how should youth ministry look in a post-christendom era? I think that a good program ministry can be very very effective. And i'm not going to chuck it out at all. But i have a feeling we need to work out how to make our youth ministry more organic and more student led.

These are just my early thoughts.
