#SYMC Speaker Notes - Doug Fields

What voices are you listening to?
  • We have many voices that we listen to... complainers, angry parents, disgruntled pastors...who are you listening to?
  • We need to hear the voice of Jesus
  • There is something powerful about having a rare voice speak into your life.
  • It is difficult to find the "helpful" voice in the midst of the "common" voice.
  • I believe that youth workers are becoming puppets orchestrated by common voices instead of being led by the rare voice of Jesus.
  • I believe there are 4 things teenagers are looking for...
  • Teenagers are looking for relationships
  • Teenagers are looking to be amazed
  • We cannot compete with culture.
  • We try to make Jesus amazing. He doesn't need our help. Jesus IS amazing!
  • People were amazed when they got around Jesus. Let students stumble on to this amazing Jesus.
  • Teenagers are looking to do something radical
  • Teenagers are looking for healing for their hurts
  • Youth Ministry is about calling students to commit to a body
  • Jesus is not a long distance savior. He is the Jesus who said "let the children come unto me."
  • Jesus is R.A.R.E: relationships, amazing, radical, empathy
  • Jesus has a transformational voice. I don't want you to miss it.
This post contains my notes from the general session at the Simply Youth Ministry Conference.
