A follow up to our Youth Immersion episode, where we examined at what age is appropriate for a person to be immersed into Christ. What is a person to do if they were immersed young? What if a person isn’t sure if they were old enough? What if, as parents, we encouraged or allowed our children to be immersed as youth? What now? Mark and Jason talk through their immersions as youth, what it did (and didn’t do) for them, as well as some practical steps moving forward.
