Help your teens become disciple multipliers
Deep and wide youth ministry is not a gimmick or a method.
It is not based on the shifting sands of the next new thing. No, it is rooted in the final command of Jesus to his first followers. It is in force
until "the end of the age."
Like Purpose Driven Youth Ministry, the principles of deep and wide youth ministry are firmly rooted in Biblical truth. They are self-evident and non-negotiable. While the five purposes bring stability and balance to a youth group, the Great Commission (AKA Deep & Wide) brings direction and focus.
But Jesus grants no such reprieve to youth leaders. His last and lasting mandate to his followers was, "Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19).
