Why Mormons Do Better Youth Ministry Than We Do

Greg Stier has written a great article over at youthministry.com Here's a snippet:
Let's face it. Most of us look at the clean cut Mormon missionaries that peddle the streets of our city and knock on the doors of our houses as somewhat out of date. Although they are kind and well spoken young men, when they knock on our doors we either don't answer or tell them we are already Christians who reject Mormonism and bid them good day.

We think to ourselves how "behind the times" these young people are forced to be when they are required to do door-to-door evangelism for their religion. We reflect on how grateful we are that we have the truth once and for all delivered to the saints. We may even think about how much more superior our youth ministry strategies are compared to theirs...
Read here how he suggests maybe we have some things to learn from them. He's got some really helpful stuff to say while clearly distancing himself from Mormonism.

Whether you've read the article or not, what do you think we can learn from the Mormon's on doing youth ministry (and ministry in general)?

Guessing comp: On which famous Sydney street is this soccer-loving cafe situated?
