Rev. Dr. Phil Huebner


The pressures, challenges, and real-life problems that teens experience today could not have been foreseen by previous generations. These many problems often overwhelm teens with all kinds of feelings: of being unloved, worthless, guilty, anxious, lonely, and more. To fight this, we will look to establish and root our identity in Christ through the facts of God’s Word instead of personal feelings.

The presentation will offer real-life counseling suggestions to those who work with, teach, pastor, or lead teens. Along with exploring the identity crisis among teens, this session will also offer suggestions for how to encourage teens to activate and involve them in ministry. The information for this session comes from careful research and intimate knowledge of teen life over years of ministry.
