Here’s an interesting article posted by “The Journal for Student Minitries” that talks about re-defining the word family within a youth ministry context. This isn’t to do away with what we know to be as a family; but rather this article helps today’s youth worker open up his definition of family in order to fully minister to today’s students.
It’s a good read, and poses some great questions.
How do you define ‘family’ within ministry? Within society?
