Is Youth Ministry Biblical?

How many times have you heard the question asking whether something is or is not biblical? Did you ever stop to think about what that actually means? What are the implications of such a question? These are some of the questions I've asked over the past twenty years. They have led me to alter my view of youth ministry and church life. Perhaps the most disturbing question I have asked in this regard relates to youth groups and the current model of age-segregated youth ministry. Are youth groups in church even a biblical model of ministry?
