Status – Switch
Courtship and dating are some of the least discussed topics in the church. Yet dating has caused the most havoc, destroyed countless lives, resulted in unwanted pregnancies and abortions, and even split churches apart. This has led many church youth groups to become havens for dating and premarital sex. The following are guidelines that best fit young people but many of the principles still apply to older and more mature single adults looking for a mate. I have taught each of my five children the difference between dating and courtship.
Dating is an unbiblical method crafted by the world with no boundaries or ethics with the following assumed rules and values:.
Youth Ministry at Bethany Green Lake Summer Middle School Group on Sunday evenings from pm, and Summer High Monthly: Next date TBD.
Around the beginning of February, youth pastors are scrambling and asking each other, “What should I put in my sex and relationships talk? What should I cover? A lot of material focuses on playing it safe and goes way too shallow. Most often while doing their homework. Not only have they heard about everything you’re afraid to say God loves them because God is love.
That never changes. No matter what we do or who we are – God’s love isn’t based on what we do or who we are. It’s based on who He is and what His Son has done. You’re gonna talk about a lot of stuff that provides Satan with an opportunity to accuse. You want to lay this on thick and protect them from feeling condemnation.

So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. This is really dangerous territory for a lot of reasons. Rather than putting ourselves in a tempting position, Scripture tells us to flee temptations, not put ourselves in the path of them and then will ourselves not to succumb.
And even if nothing physical happens, the struggle with lust will most likely be there. This is definitely not fleeing from sexual immorality or youthful passions, or pursuing righteousness from a pure heart. There is a lot of intimacy and closeness that comes with being vulnerable enough to actually sleep with someone. ALL the privileges of marriage come after the wedding.
Finally, you have your witness to non-believers to consider. They most likely assume that something physical did happen. Any of these people may know that either of you call yourself believers.

Okay, maybe not. Last February I decided to try a series or book. So I downloaded the Kindle version and quickly read it. After seeing how incredibly practical the book is, I wanted to get it into the hands of every teenager in our ministry. I appreciate the solid content, and so did our small groups as they watched intently and leaned in to listen. We purchased the four-week small-group DVD set and gave each leader a copy of the book a month in advance. In the back of the book is a small-group video discussion guide.

Lesson 7: Dating—the Benefits and Dangers
I write this in the context of having been a pastor for more then three decades as well as ministering in hundreds of local congregations. I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly regarding youth groups. I learned a long time ago that just because your local church has a youth group, it is not always in the best interest of parents to encourage their children to attend it.
Also, in the case of functional Christian families, the parents have the primary responsibility of training their children—not the church youth group.
We meet from every Sunday, with time for Middle School and High School youth to meet separately. Youth Group meetings include dinner on the first.
But it was always hardest when a student asked. At the time, I pushed the discomfort away when students inquired, telling myself that I was uncomfortable because they were trying to cross inappropriate boundaries, or that it was inappropriate for me to engage in conversations about dating with them. They were in high school, and I was an adult. My dating life, or lack thereof, was personal. But, looking back, I see none of my excuses for keeping this part of my life private were true.
Yes, there are always topics you draw boundaries on when talking with anyone—not just students. I can honestly say that whether or not I am dating someone is not one of those topics. And I know this because if I had been dating someone, I would not have been afraid to tell my students. I myself was afraid to honestly look at the story God was weaving for my life, and I most certainly did not want my students to look at it.
If they did, they might see my insecurity, brokenness, and pain.
