There is a place for constructive criticism, even in the church, but if the criticism is not contributing to the health of the body of Christ, I have some alarming news. You may be cancer. Cancer cells look different from other healthy cells, ignore signals from healthy cells, and diminish the blood supply to healthy cells. Cancer cells will not stop dividing, will not stick together, will not mature, and will not repair.

It’s true, “Some of you have been hurt by the church or discouraged about your experience with the church,” as Timothy Tennent aptly noted, “but the Church is what God is building in the world.

Most kids at the age of eleven are out playing at the park and focusing on normal eleven year old affairs, but my story was a little different.

“Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12). This verse is so true and a great set of guidelines for a North American Missions student. Although this sounds easy and straight forward, there is much more to it. In order to be an effective example in your speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity, it is important to know why you are setting an example in the first place.

Being a missions student automatically means people look up to you. Yes, you hear that all the time, but it really comes with an enormous amount of responsibility—responsibility I wouldn’t trade for anything! Other teenagers need you in their lives. They need someone they can look to for guidance without going to an adult. … Read More »
