Developing the Next Generation
By Dr. John Goetsch and Dr. Mark Rasmussen
“To develop Christ-like leaders for the future, we must be involved in mentoring and modeling. This book will be helpful for all of us who want to be effective in this important process.”
—Carl Herbster, President of America Association of Christian Schools
“If I had my life to live over again, I would live it to change the lives of people, because you have not changed anything until you’ve changed the lives of people.”
—Missionary Warren Webster
God’s Word challenges us to “train up a child in the way he should go.” Today’s parents, pastors, youth workers and teachers are training tomorrow’s generation. Secular society is clearly showing the result of a lack of emphasis on training.
Mentoring and Modeling is a primer that can help those who are working with young people to do so in an effective way. Former President Ronald Reagan said, “We don’t expect children to discover the principles of calculus on their own, but some would give them no guidance when it comes to ethics, morality, and values.”
This book will show a number of ways that children can be mentored. Bob Jones Sr. said, “You will be someday what you are now becoming.” Pastors, parents, youth workers, and teachers have a duty to mold the young people God entrusts to them in a way that pleases and glorifies our Lord and Savior.
