Throughout history, young people have been on the forefront of every significant movement for change. Now, new technology is allowing us to connect with each other and get organized in ways we've never seen. The global church faces an unprecedented opportunity. The question we face is this: How can we equip one generation, this generation of young people, to reach the next? How can we release a wave of young Christians as disciples of Jesus Christ, the greatest change-maker in history? What kind of impact might they make for the Kingdom of God? As Jesus might say, we need new wineskins, for a new generation of change-makers.The Alongsiders movement began with the simple yet powerful vision of mobilizing young Christians to walk alongside those who walk alone - reaching out and discipling vulnerable children, who they call "little brothers" and "little sisters" in their own communities. This fast-growing discipleship movement started in Asia and spread to Africa, the Middle East and beyond, and is now changing the lives of thousands of children, youth, and their families around the world.This book introduces the Alongsiders strategy in practical detail, including the history and vision, principles and practices, lessons learned, and mistakes made along the way. It is written to inspire anyone who wants to see young Christians reach their full potential as disciple-makers, and to provide practical knowledge for those who mobilize and train Alongsiders.Read and learn how God is changing the world, through a generation laying down their lives for their neighbours.
