I’ve been doing some research for an article series on teenage guys for this fall, and I thought I might open-source this a bit and get your input. So here goes:

What do you think are some of the biggest, most pressing, and/or most troubling issues for adolescent guys right now? And…What should we be doing to address them in youth ministry?

Similarly, what are our greatest opportunities right now with guys in our sphere of influence? What’s God doing among young men that we can be encouraged by and see as catalysts for growth?

Would love to hear your feedback. And I have a writing deadline this week, so I’d really love your QUICK feedback!
