The Importance of Immersing Students in the Story of God: Worldview that Leads to Authentic Christian Living

by Jason Engle

D6 Family Ministry Journal (Volume 4)





One of the central aims of spiritual formation in students is authentic Christian living, or evidence of inward transformation that actively shapes the outward expression of life. In order to achieve that aim, student ministry pedagogy must penetrate more than just the minds of young disciples by striving for a balance in engaging the intellectual, affectual, and behavioral domains. Only as knowledge is internalized, growing roots into the heart, will that knowledge begin to pervade a young life.
