Taking young people and new people in the church seriously is important, but I think that new christians and young christians also need training in how to be a Christian and how to witness to their faith. I particularly like what is said byJ warner wallace so here:-http://coldcasechristianity.com/2015/stop-teaching-young-christians-about-their-faith/

You never know, the young person may surprise you with what understanding they have already, having been taught directly from the Source Himself, rather than waiting in line for man's teaching.  People assume age is relevant in regards to what a person can offer or has knowledge of. 

I would suggest 'elders' should exercise their 'submission' somewhat and see what happens.

How important is teaching in your churches? By this I mean are your sermons more than a regular alter call or denouncement of the latest craze.
How often do your heard sermons that explain theology, that actual teach you something about Christianity, or explain why a certain crazy or popular believe is wrong according to the bible?

I think these are important and don't think that I hear these sermons often enough, but this is one of many bees in my bonnet.
Have a look at these reasons and comment. link:-

Christians don't need the gospel, They need good Bible teaching, If strangers come in, the Minister can give an appeal for salvation.
One third of Jesus Ministry was teaching, He went about, Preaching, Teaching and healing the sick.
Of cause there is a time to preach, [When sinners come in], But the Body of Christ need teaching.

I never study to get a message together, I always wait for God to tell me what to Minister on, Then I get the scriptures and check up the Hebrew and Greek meanings, [If I don't already know].

The story goes Moody had preached a sermon on Hell and told the congregation to return next week for the Answer to Hell. That week the great Chicago fire devastated the city. That congregation never reassembled.
Moody after that no matter what his sermon was about, always included an explanation of the gospel and why we needed to respond to it.

I've been brought up under preaching that no matter what the subject or reason for the sermon, there is always, at an appropriate place, a presentation of the gospel.
