Thought Factory Podcast #1211 | 1/2 | The Church Basement is Burning | Is Youth Ministry Dying? The Causes


Several things within the Church are causing a decline in the Youth Ministry department.  But, if the Church ignores the things going on under the surface, it could take out the entire Church in the future.  In this episode, Geoff and Jayson are joined by a special guest, Charlie Alcock, a professor at Indiana Wesleyan University, to discuss the causes.  They identify seven causes of why they think this is happening, that range from financial to church planting to outdated methodologies.  This is a two-part series, so check out the second episode (#1212) after this one to hear the solutions.
