A reformation is needed. An army is emerging, and the pastor has been appointed and anointed by the Head of the Church (every generation) to lead them all within a Biblical community of believers. Pastor, lead the emerging generation as you do the adults.
“God had one Son and He made Him a missionary” (David Livingstone). Jesus last command was to GO.
Biblically, I only see two principles for reaching the next generation
A strong prayer shield must start at home–including the children.
A true cell group must not ignore the command of Jesus to “go into all the world …”
One of the best things about ministering as a team is comraderie and never walking alone. Allow me to share why this is true.

Many try and change culture by changing the structure, however it is my understanding that it needs to be the other way round.

A leader leads his family and his church / cell. A leader has followers in his family and in his church / cell. Followers observe him in his family and his church / cell. Followers imitate him in his family and in his church / cell.

Most cell leaders do a great job caring for their people. My heart is to see cell members encouraging and appreciating their leaders.
In the larger celebration gathering, we see the teaching ministry, worship, coming together as a family.
As the family of God we must preserve and reflect His image as seen in the human family that He created and ordained on earth.
I love prayer with action. Sometimes there is nothing we can do and it is all up to God, while at other times, we can act. When leading prayer, especially in the cells, I like to take some time to act on a prayer topic.
