For the love of God: A desperate plea

God does not change (Mal. 3:6).  He can be persuaded through the prayers of His righteous people to accomplish His purposes in a different way sometimes (James 5:16), but He does not change.

As the time drew near, goals from personal success to organizational overhaul looked to the broadening 2020 horizon as the arrival of achievement, satisfaction and a charge toward new beginnings in a modern future.

BLOG: From College to Coffin… What will we do with the rest of our lives?

When we look at the history of the church, the position of youth minister is a relatively new slot on a church staff.  After WWII, the influx of children (known as the Baby Boom) impacted the church in such a way that child care and youth ministries were developed to deal with the blessing of numbers. Programs and camps were developed to make the worship experience fun and something where they would want to bring their friends....
