Discipleship Under the Crown

Discipleship Under the Crown

By Al James
corōna (Latin: “garland, crown”)

The youth ministry landscape has shifted dramatically but the mission remains the same - discipling young people to know, love and follow Jesus.

We ask the question, “how do we keep discipleship front and centre in the face of Covid-19”

Covid as a Spotlight - What has COVID-19 shown you about your ministry and what's most important?
Today we're joined by Josh Wilson from Life Anglican Church, Quakers Hill. Just as a torch shows us the things we can't see in the dark, Covid-19 can show us some things we may not have seen or realised before about our ministry or our young people. We talk with Josh about what Covid has shown to the youth ministry at Quakers Hill and reflect on how they might intentionally take that information into the future as when they relaunch their youth ministry.

On this episode we talk with Tim Escott, former youth minister at St David's Forrestville, currently serving at St Mark's Darling Point having just completed a PhD in Old Testament Studies. We focus today on responding pastorally and theologically to the crisis - the crisis itself more than the disruption to our ministry programs.
