n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Missio Dei and youth ministry - mobilizing young people's assets and developing relationships

Volume 43, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



It is said that young people are the future of a country. It is also widely believed that young people flourish as human beings when they are entrusted with responsibility and leadership roles. This article advocates a distinctive approach in the effort of local churches to rethink how it could maximize the potential of young people and build healthy relationships across different generations in the church's participation in the Missio Dei. An examination of an asset-based and relational approach to the Missio Dei provides the local church with a potential dual movement that can have positive, far-reaching and more sustainable implications in the broader community.
