Last week I spent a few days at the South Carolina Baptist Convention’s Annual Meeting. It’s always a great opportunity to connect with fellow pastors and this year was a much-needed time of refreshing. This year’s youth pastor’s meeting was exceptional. Dr. Richard Ross, youth ministry professor at Southwestern Seminary, spoke to us about his views on the need for change in youth ministry and the entire discipleship process. Since last week I’ve been reading his new book, “Student Ministry and the Supremacy of Christ.” This is one of the best student ministry books that I’ve read in a long while. Dr. Ross’ incites on helping students see Christ for who He truly is and helping connect students to the entire church are spot on. I can already see many areas in the youth ministry at Morningside that could use some of the suggestions that are brought up in this book. I have so much more to learn and I’m grateful for great teachers like Richard Ross.
