What is a healthy student ministry?
A healthy student ministry is one whose foundation is Jesus Christ, and whose primary function is to glorify God. A youth group whose teaching, worship, activities, and service is not founded upon Christ should simply pack up and go home. Without the foundation of the Gospel, that is, the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, there is no reason to have a student ministry.
Further, a healthy student ministry is one whose members are in growing, maturing relationships with one another. It is one whose members are motivated out of love for Jesus Christ to share the gospel, disciple believers, do missions, and serve the local church.
