As a part of the Innovation Lab, we invited participating churches to interview teenagers and to observe them, to talk to them, and to listen to them. We also talked to professionals who regularly interact with teenagers outside of the church. If you want to begin thinking about how you might do youth ministry differently, we have to begin with today’s unique teens.
We created a ‘teenager’ and an ‘adult who works with teenagers’ interview guide so that you can start your own investigation into today’s teens. This is a great project for a student ministry team to tackle together.
