In contrast to the other videos out there produced by "churches" (like these and these) and especially those produced for youth "ministry," the following videos are rather mild. However, Ingrid Schlueter really hits the nail on the head with the following quote on the state of perpetual adolescence in church leadership. It begs the question Who's pastoring the youth pastors?
The problem with a lot of youth "ministry" today is that it is all youth and no ministry. With the collective emotional age of a lot of youth pastors not exceeding 12, it is difficult to know what these youth events accomplish aside from furthering the cause of permanent adolescence. Remember Scripture's injunctions that the older teach the younger? What happens when there is no "older?" What happens when nobody matures mentally or emotionally past childhood? What happens when the supposed "men" are flabby, undisciplined kids who spend their time posting videos of themselves on YouTube? Here's what happens.
The above video was produced for an announcement segment plugging the 2010 National Youth Ministry Conference in Chicago.
The following video (produced by the same folks) is definitely catering to the lowest common denominator. Violence, youth rebellion, disobedience to authority . . . all the elements you'd expect to see in a video for youth ministry in American Christianity. And by the way, (at the 39 second mark of this video) does the kid's shirt on the left say what I think it does?
There's a name for this type of behavior. It's called Rejuvenile.
