EVERYTHING IN YOUTH MINISTRY STARTS HERE

Middle School

Kurt Johnston leads the student ministries team at Saddleback Church in Southern California. His ministry of choice, however, is junior high, where he spends approximately 83.4% of his time.

Am I the only junior high youth worker who actually finds this little video sort of fun? We played it in our service this past weekend and our kids were dancing and singing along. Cheesy? Yes. But It’s good, clean fun….and I think that in itself deserves a little love.

Set aside your concerns about the next generation, the consumerism of our culture, stage moms, our desire to achieve fame at any cost or whatever other grave concerns this raises in your mind…in other words, lighten up….and enjoy.

And, you know you’ll be showing this to your students this week! You can’t resist, even though you will try.

You can read an article about it here.

    I had an intense internal struggle with this video. We almost showed it but at the last minute, I pulled it.

    Why?

    Because if I showed it, it was so we could mock and laugh at this teenage (preteen?) girl. Man, I felt bad about that.

    Strangely, I had no qualms about taking Rebecca Black to task two years ago. Maybe that means I’m growing up?
