So You Want To Go Deeper In Your Class Or Group?

By Trevin Wax

I once met a youth pastor who was so frustrated with accusations of "shallowness" and demands for "more depth" that he told me, "Fine! If they want to go deeper, I'm going to go so deep it drives them nuts. I'll drown them in depth!" Not exactly the best posture to take as a disciple-maker of the next generation.

I didn't like the youth pastor's attitude. But I did understand his frustration. Sometimes it's hard to please the people clamoring for "deeper" teaching because everyone seems to have a different idea of what "deep" is.


Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
