Games, growth and making disciples

I hear this a lot in Youth Ministry.
Just play games and get young people along.
We want our young people to have fun and belong.
Attractional youth ministry.
Numbers youth ministry

Think about a time in your life when you had tremendous growth as a Christian.
I can almost guarantee it was when you were spending good time in Bible reading, devoted time in prayer, listening to good preaching, regularly meeting with Christians and using your gifts and abilities to serve in some capacity.
This was the case for me over the last year.

I'm guessing it wasn't when you were playing heaps of games.

So why is it that we want to do that with our young people?

I'm not against games.

I am for Making Disciples.
