In this paper I critique the claim that 'youth ministry is a part of theology'. I argue that such a position is both misplaced and damaging to the development of the profession. It is a residual belief of our corporate juvenilia. I propose a greater focus on the 'critical common sense' of the faith community arguing that this is distinct from 'theology'.I discuss a number of different approaches to theology arguing that none provides an adequate foundation to practical youth ministry. I then explore the notion of 'critical common sense' through a consideration of perception, and MacIntyre's idea of an 'educated public'.
