The contention of Hill is that the world of theological formation and reflection is often quite distinct from the realm of youth ministry practice. Many ministerial problems are directly related to a poor theology of youth ministry, and a poor ability to conduct a conversation between the two. Fragmented youth ministry practices, personal conflict and dissatisfaction, retreat from asking broad questions of programs and purposes, and unquestioning adoption of offshore solutions, are some of the results. For these reasons a well-developed theology of youth ministry is crucial to longevity, integrity, and theological and personal conviction in the life of the youth leader and pastor. This paper explores some broad theological concepts and applies them to the practice of youth ministry.
