  1. The "Fourth Wave": A Theological Perspective on Youth Ministry

    Fall 1999 — Pages 47-61

    Because of the realities of postmodernism, contemporary youth are disconnected from one another, and from the church. The task of the youth minister is not confrontation with the culture, but to enter the culture as an agent of redemption. Rather than being motivated by fear, we must become ethnographic servants, capable of "reading' and serving the various adolescent cultures we engage. This article offers insights into contemporary cultural issues, and grounding in theological absolutes which must drive effective youth ministry in the current settings.
