Keeping Covenant with our Youth
Each month the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary sponsors a “webinar,”which is a new e-term for an internet seminar that people can access via their computer. A PowerPoint presentation accompanies a 30-40 minute lecture usually done by a professor or pastor on a variety of topics. From “Facebook and Faith” to “Is Your Church Healthy?” to “Ministry to the Poor” to “Biblical Counseling,” solid, Biblical teaching is offered via the internet to anyone in the world who wants to tune in. Several of our “GenRef Gents” (as I call our contributors) have done lectures. For access to past webinars, you can go here.
Today at 3:00 I will be conducting a webinar called “Keeping Covenant with Our Youth: Encouraging Congregations in Educating Children.” So often the focus of a congregation’s efforts can turn to activities for the youth rather than their discipleship. As this issue has been on my heart for quite some time, I’ll be offering principles congregations can implement to encourage the latter rather than falling into the former. I taught this at our denomination’s Synod meeting this past summer, and have augmented it to include a section I’m calling “Pursuing the Prodigals.” I’ll be sharing some of what the Lord has taught our church through the heart pain of seeing young people turn from the Lord.
