Mike Yaconelli’s Broadside on Youth Ministry

I’ve just posted an article about the failure of youth ministry that I’ve been sitting on for a number of years. I didn’t write it. It was written by Mike Yaconelli, the founder of Youth Specialties and Youth Worker Journal, the year before he died in a car accident.

Coming from “THE guy” in youth ministry, the article created a firestorm, …then it disappeared after his death. But his message was heard by some, including those who published the “Seismic Shift” article which I’ve copied right after Mike’s. I finally decided to post it after sharing the article privately for years.


The Failure of Youth Ministry, and Seismic Shift: A Call to Youth Ministers

Then print it and staple it to the forehead of every youth minister, well-meaning parent, youth volunteer, and youth committee.
