#OC12 Notes: Craig Groeschel

  • Craig is doing a talk on "Raising the Next Generation"
  • What do you think success looks like for the next generation?
  • Culture says success is raising well-rounded, well educated kids.
  • When I'm hiring I want someone who is great at "one thing"... not someone who is average at many things.
  • Jesus asks "What good would it be for a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?"
  • David in Psalm 71:18 "Do not forsake me... till I declare your power to the next generation."
  • We are called to unleash single-minded, Christ-centered, Biblically-anchored world changers!  
  • There are 3 things we MUST do:
  • We must enlist supporting voices to impart truth to your kids.
  • You may be the main voice in your kids life... but you are not the only voice!
  • We must build up leaders to mentor young ones!
  • We must raise the expectations and standards of the next generation!
  • Before children were 12 in Jesus' day they had to memorize the first 5 books of the Bible.  We give them a candy bar if they can name the first 5 books of the Bible!
  • Jesus raised the standard!  "Lose your life!  Lay it down!  Pick up your cross!"  
  • We have raised a generation of students who feel entitled.
  • 1 Corinthians 13:11
  • Keep it real! 
  • If ministry to students is not real to you, don't even show up!  
  • Students can smell a fake a mile away!
  • If you won't them to be students of the Word  then let them see you in the Word! 
  • If you want students to be people of prayer, you better be on your face eating carpet before God! 
  • Set the example.  They will follow.
  • Christianity is not something we do.  It's who we are! 
This post contains my notes from the general session at the Orange Conference.
