“The greatest need of our teens today is not new restrictions and new dumbphones and contracts and limits. Their greatest need is a community of faith where they can thrive in Christ, serve, and be served, to need to find a necessary place as a legitimate part of a healthy church. Keep building faithful churches. Listen to teens. Don’t mock them. Don’t laugh at them. Envision them for risk-taking mission—online and offline.” — Tony Reinke
