In the last episode, we told stories exploring where the gospel meets teenagers. In today’s episode, Jesse Eubanks and Anna Tran reflect on all the things they couldn’t say about teenagers – including the pitfalls of sheltering our teens too long and exposing our teens too soon. Anna interviews Jen Bradbury of Fuller Youth Institute about customizing our approach to discipleship for modern teenagers. Anna and Jen explore what conservatives and progressives each get right and wrong about teenagers and how the way of Jesus is better, and Anna makes a phone call to someone around the world to see what they’re doing right now to make an impact on today’s topic.
