Discipling the next generation in today's youth culture can seem like a daunting task. In many ways, the soup our kids swim in seems more complex, and with cultural values shifting faster than any other time we have experienced. However, we are not without hope. Christ has called us to a time such as this. In our session, we will look at some of the latest research and, more importantly, the Scriptures to remind us of a few foundations that we must continue to stand on if we are going to pass on the faith to the students God has placed in our care.
