Introducing the 7 Discipleship Emphases

TENx10's faith formation strategy - relational discipleship radically focused on Jesus - is rooted in 7 Discipleship Emphases. When you practice these Discipleship Emphases regularly, you give young people the best chance to develop a faith that matters more.

TENx10 is the most ambitious attempt to bring churches together for the sake of Christ and young people in our lifetimes. It’s high time.

The challenge of communicating God’s truth and love to our increasing complex and fractured world should not be underestimated. I am so thankful for the work of TENx10 to reach the next generation in an impactful manner. Efforts like TENx10 offer a hope for the church that God is at work in a deep and meaningful way.

I’ve been involved in youth ministry in various capacities over the past three decades and believe there's no better time than right now to unleash TENx10, a collaborative discipleship movement. I don’t believe this is simply a good idea, but a mandate from God.

In Christus Vivit, Pope Francis quotes the proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together (ChV 167).” NFCYM is excited to collaborate with Protestant and Greek Orthodox through TENx10 as we together seek to dramatically increase the number of young people who follow Jesus by equipping diverse churches with the discipleship tools they need.

I am deeply excited and inspired to be part of TENx10. We face a critical moment in history and we have the opportunity to make a massive Kingdom impact that will affect generations of young people far into the future. TENx10 is the crucial vehicle in that movement.

I know that thanks to what God does in and through TENx10, we will see youth around the nation more active in their faith and making a Kingdom impact.

The vision of TENx10 isn't just inspiring, when realized it stands to become generationally transformative. If you're tired of watching young adults walk away, then lean into what's happening through TENx10.
