How can we effectively preach the Gospel to young people during this pandemic?
Bob Goody, Director of Mission and Evangelism of Youth For Christ, has always been passionate about youth ministry after his own dramatic conversion at the age of 16. During his early years, he has been addicted to drugs and alcohol. At the age of 16, he came to know Jesus and decided to dedicate his entire life to Him.
From there, he has been serving a mission for young people for the last 19 years. Today, he is now the Evangelism & Missions Director of the global movement, Youth For Christ. In an episode of Standing Together, Bob revealed how they effectively preached the Gospel to the young generation during this pandemic.
“As Youth For Christ, we just want to see lives changed,” Bob said. “We want to be able to speak that hope into their lives.”

Since the pandemic broke out in 2020, Youth For Christ continued their missions where the younger generations are, in the digital space. Bob also shared how can one effectively share the Gospel to the young people, it is by being real and honest with them.
“In reality, young people are looking for people that are honest, that are real with them, that don’t come across as fakes. They’re not looking for you to adapt to who they are, they just want you to be with them and for them,” he added.
But before we can preach the Gospel to them, we first need to be confident in the Gospel and who we are as children of God.
“We need to be confident in who we are because God is confident in who we are.”
