Is youth group the kids table?

We love Kara Powell and the learnings that came out of Fuller Youth Institute’s Sticky Faith research.

There seem to be two dominant schools of thought in the youth ministry world right now. There are the self-contained program models and the family-based models. But this video seems to be advocating a third option, one of integration. (Dare I say de-age-segregation?)

What do you think? Does youth group relegate our students to the kids table of the church? And what if the “kids” in our ministry like sitting at the kids table?

  1. Really grateful for what FYI’s Stickyfaith passionate push for family integration. We ( King’s Kids/Youth With A Mission) has been practicing, advocating and consulting churches on the intergenerational model for the last 20 years.  I hope to see churches to start shifting into this paradigm.  Thanks Adam and Merry Christmas.
