2006-08-30_0058.jpgOne of the toughest challenges we face as parents, youth leaders, and church leaders is knowing when a teenager is ready to make "Jesus the Lord" of his life.  A young man or woman may say or do all the "right things", but how do you know if they are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to Christ?

Damon Curtis (Youth Minister, New York) and Larry Craig (Elder, New York) explored this very important topic at the International Conference of Youth and Family Ministry in Chicago.  Click here to listen to Damon and Larry's lesson:  "How Do I Know When They Are Ready to Be Baptized?"

Additionally, John Brush (Elder, South Florida Church of Christ) shares observations to help us discern when our teenagers are ready to be baptized.  pdf Click here to download "Is a teenager ready to get baptized?"
