Youth workers talk big, and promise #LifeChange more than we produce changed lives. Social media has made it easier than ever to hype events and market ministries. What to do when reality fails to match our rhetoric? Let’s explore how to align our mission, message, and methods as an answer to Jesus’ prayer: ‘Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.’
Jeremy Del Rio co-founded and directs 20/20 Vision for Schools, a movement to transform public education that launched in New York City in 2008; teaches as an adjunct faculty member at Alliance and Fuller seminaries; and connects, trains, and mentors youth workers through Urban Youth Workers Institute and Youth Specialties. He has consulted ministries and nonprofits since 2000; and directed Generation Xcel, a holistic youth center in Manhattan, from 1996-2006. Jeremy was the founding, bi-vocational youth pastor at Abounding Grace Ministries (1994-2004), and also worked as a corporate attorney in New York. He has contributed to six recent books, including Deep Justice in a Broken World (Zondervan/YS 2008) and The Justice Project (Baker Books 2009), and his articles have appeared in Charisma, Willow, The Journal of Student Ministries, Relevant, and elsewhere. He and his wife Diana have two sons, Judah and Cyrus. Visit them online at www.JeremyDelRio.com.
