Is the Church’s Obsession With Youth Ministry Beneficial?

So it’s not surprising perhaps that, like the culture generally, many churches deemed most “alive” and “cutting-edge” reflect a near obsession with youth.  My mentor, James Montgomery Boice, used to say that instead of the more biblical pattern of children growing toward maturity, churches were turning adults into children.  Positively, this youthful orientation provided energy and zeal, but it also changed our spiritual ecology.
