One of the most exciting parts of being a youth leader who lives out a Gospel Advancing Ministry is student evangelism when students put their faith in Christ for the first time. They are excited and refreshed by the Spirit of God who has washed them of their sin and marked them as a child of God for all eternity.
New believers are always enthusiastic about their newfound faith and are ready to evangelize with anyone that comes across their path.

But if we want to be leaders who model gospel advancement, then we need to equip and encourage all of our students—no matter how young—to take up THE Cause.

You need to carefully help them (and their parents) see the priority of living a gospel-centered life, which means living and worshiping God in everything that you do (check out our Youth Group 2 Go lesson that addresses this topic here).
Help your students and their parents understand that living on mission means using whatever resources, skills and talents God has given you to...
