Just a few days ago I posted a tweet that got a bunch of online traction. Here’s the tweet…

I was surprised at the number of comments, retweets and likes it got. To me, the tweet didn’t seem that profound. But, as I think about why it may have struck such a nerve, I’m convinced it’s because failing to motivate and equip our teens in evangelism is a HUGE MISS in the typical discipleship strategy.
The average Christian high school senior is not motivated, equipped or expected to actively share the Gospel. No wonder so many abandon their faith after high school! They have no skin in the game!
