101: How Can You Help Teenagers Live Out Their Faith — Even When They Aren’t At Your Youth Ministry?

This kind of double living can be extreme, but it can also be fairly mild. Sometimes there’s teenagers that are known for their faith while at your ministry, but you’d be hard pressed to find anyone at their school that knows they are a Christian. How do you help them bridge the divide that can exist between your youth ministry and the rest of their week?
