Reflection on Youth Ministry: Reaching the Present Age

Although the message of Christ is timeless and eternal, the church must continuously take the pulse of the culture in which it is placed in order to present the gospel in a fashion that can be readily accepted and applied, says Vajaah E. Parker, past president of the Varick International Christian Youth Council of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. In an article written for the African American Lectionary project, an online resource for African American Christianity, Parker advocates borrowing tools and principles from the business world to uncover the values and needs of individuals who would benefit from the church’s message and ministries, and to “package and present accessible and relevant ministries to its potential beneficiaries.” Read more of Parker’s experience-based perspective, along with other reflections from young African American clergy, by accessing the Day to Day page of the lectionary project’s website. Or access the PDF of "Reaching the Present Age."
