When the Mentors Disappear

This is powerful. I truly wonder that if the church does not take mentoring serious this is what the church will look like in two decades.

    Wow. This breaks my heart. I’ve served at both a “thriving” mega church and a “dying” church. Both churches had a lot of talk about the next generation but lacked mentoring programs. The dying church was full of old people who didn’t know how to mentor so they “tried” reaching the youth but failed. And the mega church was full of young people in the moment.

    When we look at church culture and where it is headed, something drastic needs to happen. A movement. A movement where men and women teach boys and girls, are their emotional support and tough love- without a Godly example of church displayed by the people who are going in front of us, we will just keep building castles in the sand. When the tide comes in, nothing. Everything that was built up is vanished. The kingdom vision, gone.

      And I totally think that this is the thing that could lead the church forward or like the video says, make the church disappear.

    Our pastor sent some of us this video. So powerful!

    One thought I had was that a lot of guys feel like one day they should start acting grown-up, but they haven’t actually had the “growing up” experiences. I was a manchild once, and it took some specific instances for me to wake up.

    I worry that not everyone is having those experiences b/c it’s easier to get by without leaving home, going to school, or getting a job.

    or maybe none of that is true and I’m just starting to see things cynically, which seems to happen when people get older.

    I can’t wait to pour into my son. I wish he’d hurry up and get born.
