Lessons For Young Leaders: Give Young People Responsibility and Expect Great Things of Them – Dave Burke

You know that song ‘ When I survey the wondrous cross’ ? Isaac Watts’ original lyrics ran ‘Where the young prince of glory died’. Jesus was about 30 when he began his public ministry; the early church was a youth movement. The word ‘elders’ can confuse us today. Paul’s elders were probably quite young by our standards. The apostles were young; John was in his teens in AD26 when Jesus called him, he died at a ripe old age in the 90’s. I was trained to be a leader in the Scouts. Within a few months of joining they sent us off into the wilderness on a hike and I was in charge! Churches need to do the same; give young people real responsibility and expect great things of them.
