Grow: Mentor & Discipleship (Week 3)

Speaker:  Dan Buschow



II Timothy 2:2 These thing you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to reliable men who are qualified to teach others.

I Corinthians 11:1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.



We must be willing to fight for each generation!

I have stood before churches in each generation with a youth standing by my side and asked the question…
“Will you fight for this generation?”  
The whole world is fighting for this generation of youth!  Society, marketers, political parties! 
Will the church fight for this generation of Gen-Zers?  We can’t afford to slip any further away!  Today only 4% of Gen-Zers have a biblical world view.

Are You Ready?
