Greg Stier: Why Your Whole Church Needs To Care About Student Ministry

“With adults, we have to constantly tell them, ‘Build bridges, build relationships and make connections.’ If you tell a teenager to build bridges to their unreached friends, they’re going to look at you like you’re crazy. Their whole life is building bridges. They’ve just got to be equipped to cross them.”

“What means most to a teenager is how their friends perceive them. And when they evangelize, they’re putting that social equity on the altar and they’re saying, ‘You know what, I’m willing to sacrifice this for the sake of the gospel,’ and they mature as a result.”

“Youth ministries that were thriving with new disciples…intercessory prayer was a huge priority.”

“If you’re a church leader and you are not personally sharing the gospel, then your people aren’t going to share the gospel.”

“I think COVID has actually helped evangelism.”

“Once a month [at church] you say, ‘Hey, everybody putting your stuff away. Stop putting your stuff away right now because we’re in a battle with Satan for the souls of people in here that don’t yet know Christ. So keep your eyes open and pray for the people around you know Christ.'”

“Pray every day: ‘God, give me an opportunity today to share the good news with somebody.’ And that’s a prayer that God loves to answer.”
