I want you to answer two questions.
1. What do you think is the biggest danger to the church? Not necessarily the local church, but Christianity as a whole.
2. What do you think is the biggest danger to the local, and more specifically our youth group?
Before I became the elder over youth, I regularly taught the leadership training class for the church. It was broken up into two modules. One spent 12-14 weeks looking at all the major doctrines. The other module spent 12-14 weeks working through Alexander Strauch's Biblical Eldership. The two questions above are asked in this book. I would teach through book 1-2 times a year. It always helped me stay focused on the responsibilities of an elder. I have not taught through it since I took over the youth. I have been thinking about the lessons from the book lately and how they will apply to the youth.
So what do you think? What are the biggest dangers.
Anybody is welcome to join in this discussion. You don't have to be from OBC.
