10 ways to help your teens grow deeper in their faith

Posted by Greg Stier on Feb 18, 2013 1:19:32 AM

Find me on:

1. Put them in situations where they have something to risk (mission trips, evangelistic outreaches, etc.) Matthew 10:38

2. Make prayer the engine not the caboose in your discipleship strategy. Philippians 1:9-11

3. Teach them something from the Bible, then go and apply it right away. James 1:22

4. Model an authentic Christian walk personally. Luke 6:40

5. Recruit adult sponsors who make disciples that make disciples. 2 Timothy 2:2

6. Teach teenagers how to have an effective, consistent quiet time (prayer, Bible study, meditation, etc.) 2 Timothy 2:15

7. Train your teens to walk in a moment-by-moment dependence on Jesus. John 15:5

8. Program for the many but pour your life into the few (and willing!) Matthew 13:1-23

9. Challenge and equip parents to take the lead for the spiritual development of their own kids. Deuteronomy 6:5-9

10. Inspire and equip them to share their faith with their friends. This will steel and seal their faith! Philemon 6
