Youth Ministry: Christian school non-Christians

One of the things that we're keen to encourage our Christian teenagers to do is pray for friends who don't know Jesus. Our hope is that as Christian teenagers understand the death of Jesus for sins, they will understand that their non-Christian friends are in desperate need to hear of Jesus' love and put their trust in him. We are increasingly seeing this happen.

Problem.

About 60% of our teenagers go to Christian schools. When they're in year 7 they don't realise that there are non-Christians in their year group. This gradually changes as they grow older and the differences between the Christian and non-Christian students are more obvious.

Question: How do you help year 7 Christian students work out the non-Christians in their year group?

Suggestion: 1) Let them know that before too long they will start to work out which of their peers needs to hear about Jesus. 2) A good place to start are those who aren't already part of a church/youth group. There's normally a good chance they're not from Christian families and need to keep hearing about Jesus.

Under God we've seen youth from non-Christian families hooked into our youth group and Jesus. In God's mercy we've seen whole families come to put their trust in Jesus.
