A Weed in the Church: How a Culture of Age Segregation is Harming the Next Generation, Fragmenting the Family, and Dividing the Church

While almost everyone involved in youth ministry agrees the modern church faces a crisis, there is much disagreement regarding its severity and diagnosis. A Weed in the Church suggests that this well-recognized crisis has a specific cause which will surprise many. Brown argues that while Scripture defines and wholeheartedly encourages youth discipleship, the premises of modern youth ministry are at odds with biblical teaching and must be reformed. A Weed in the Church unfolds the history, the nature, the effect, and the root problem of systematic, age-segregated youth ministry and presents helpful solutions built on Scripture's sure foundation.
