Youth evangelism has never been high on the agenda of churches. Culture has often, more than what churches would want to admit, determined the ruling attitude towards youth and even more so inactive and/or alienated youth. In many churches even the absence of younger members from normal and weekly church activities are not even registered. What is evenly tragic is that when and wherever churches do reach out to alienated youth it is often still in an authoritarian, propositional and even confrontational way. The church is and remains, in spite of its inadequacies, God's intended people to reach the world. This paper is about the conversion of the evangelist (the church) in order to reach out in a different way. It is about becoming and being a servant, serving people back, in the Name of the One who did not come to be served but to serve (Mark 10:45). The question is about the integrity and quality of discipleship in the church.
