Youth is the time of life between childhood and adulthood (maturity). Definitions of the specific age range that constitutes youth vary. An individual’s actual maturity may not correspond to their chronological age, as immature individuals could exist at all ages.
Often youth is associated with vigor, freshness or immaturity
A cartel is a formal agreement among competing firms. It is a formal organization where there is a small number of sellers and usually involve homogeneous products. Cartel members may agree on such matters as total industry output, market shares, allocation of customers, allocation of territories, establishment of common sales agencies, and the division of profits or combination of these.
These two definitions really have little to do with the Youth Cartel…
However, this new organization does specialize is providing innovative resources to youth workers of all kinds with their moto “Instigating a Revolution in Youth Ministry”
The founding partners are two of the leading youth ministry voices and have years of experience speaking, creating, writing, and working with teenagers. They are wacky, funny, in love with Jesus and teens, and progressive enough to speak into the future of youth ministry. Here are brief bio’s on Mark Oestreicher and Adam McLane.
I deeply appreciate their passion for youth and youth workers and ability to speak into the lives of many in diverse contexts. I have the privilege of partnering with the Youth Cartel in hosting Open Paris this spring.
