"The passion of my life is to see teenagers exalt the majesty of Christ and then invite Him to live through them—to bring His kingdom on earth. I have discovered that is far more likely when new teenagers already have experienced L.I.T. during 5th–6th grades. Those 12-year-olds already have a passion for Christ, a heart for the lost, consistency in the spiritual disciplines, and skills in ministry. If older grade-schoolers in every church were having experiences such as these, student ministries in America would be very different. I strongly encourage church leaders and parents to give this ministry approach careful attention."
