Today’s teenagers are struggling with issues that I never would have dreamed of as a teen. Many of them also lack the home support system that most of us enjoyed growing up. Where are they getting their influence? Every town has several churches with youth workers that desire to reach today’s teenagers, but it looks impossible to reach all the students in your community that need help. They cannot do it. No single church can reach all the teenagers in a community. They do not have the time or resources. I know. I was a church youthworker for 15 years. They cannot do it alone.
I now work with National Network of Youth Ministries in southern Illinois, western Indiana, and western Kentucky. We are a non-denominational 501c3 that helps coach, support and encourage youth workers. We work to bring unity to the churches in a community to make a larger impact than their individual resources allow. We cannot do this on our own. I would be honored to come share about this effort with churches, Rotary clubs, Kiwanis meetings, book clubs, or anyone who will listen. Contact me and we will set a time. This generation of teenagers are worth it.
We need your help. Everything we do is funded by the generosity of people just like you. You can read more and give secure, tax deductible donations at www.youthworkers.net/brentlacy .
