A Challenge Toward Greater Church and Parachurch Emphases Upon Early Adolescent Ministries

From: Volume XI, Issue 2: Winter 1991 Pages 27-38


One of the most neglected groups within both church and parachurch ministries in this century has been that of the early adolescent. For decades, it has been overshadowed and sometimes swallowed up by heavy emphasis upon high school ministries. Though the 1980s have reflected a positive tend in the progress of junior high work, Mohler and Fortosis underscore convincingly the need for a greater understanding of the unique stage of early adolescence. Also included in the article are brief profiles of the early adolescent leader, effective junior high teaching approaches, and recommendations for the future of junior high ministries.
