  4. Back to the Future: A Historical Perspective on Youth Ministry

    Fall 1999 — Pages 17-30

    A survey of the history of Christian education shows that from the apostolic church forward, the church has taken the education of believers as one of her primary tasks. Following the influence of Horace Bushnell, the modern church in the United States has continued in its task of nurture. But the emergence of "adolescence" at the turn of the last century caused an increased sensitivity to issues related to youth, and the need for specialized ministry geared to the needs of adolescence. The contemporary need is to regain the vision for youth ministry which has evangelism as its primary concern, and not simply the model of nurture from past generations.

  5. A Longitudinal Study of the Effects of Faculty Mentoring on the Spiritual Well-Being of Late Adolescents

    Fall 1998 — Pages 91-110

    The purpose of this study was to identify the effects of faculty mentoring on the spiritual well-being (SWB) of freshman students. This inquiry examined two groups of freshmen students, their spiritual well-being and their interaction with faculty mentors. Two groups were randomly chosen from the 1993-94 freshman class of a Christian liberal arts college in New England. Students in the experimental group participated in one of ten sections of the freshmen seminar with a faculty-mentor throughout the academic year. The control group proceeded through the academic year as usual without the freshman seminar experience. Students in both groups were given a self-assessment survey in September of their freshman year and again in May of their freshman year to determine if there was any significant change in their SWB and to explore their perceptions of student-faculty interaction. Data were analyzed through a variety of statistical tests using the Statistical Program for the Social Sciences (SPSS).
