2 Christian Youth-Leadership Imperatives Flourish or Flounder. Neither is Easy By Brace E. Barber May 10, 2018 Christian Apologetics Speaker There is one major content change and one major process change that will separate failing youth groups from flourishing youth groups over the next five years.

This complexity and its powerful illusion of design is why so many people succumb to the God temptation. The temptation to evade, by invoking a designer, the responsibility to explain.” Is he right?!
