Low expectations can be a killer for teens.
Tell a teenager that they aren’t capable of doing something and they won’t even try. Likewise if you empower a teenager to do something big they can exceed even the loftiest of expectations.
I believe that teens are capable of doing more. They are able to make a real impact. They can change the community in which they live. They can transform the schools that they attend. They can do more.
So as adults we need to let them. We need to show them a goal that is crazy huge and then let them run after it. Let them surprise us. All we have to do is show them how much more they can do.
This is what our Disciple Now weekend is all about. Empowering students to Do Something. Something big. Something that can change lives. Something new. Disciple Now is April 11-13 and it’s going to be pretty awesome. Here is the registration form. Encourage your kid to be here, make them if you must, they will thank you later!
