Hitting On All Eight Cylinders In Youth Ministry
As with you, there are some aspects of God's character that are easily exemplified and amplified in my ministry because of how I am wired. My true heart's desire, however, is for students to understand the whole character of God, not just a slice or two. In order to do that, to operate at full-throttle, it takes intentionality on my part, as it will on yours. So, in this Youth Leader's Coach, we'll hit on eight overall themes that we need to make sure are woven throughout our youth ministry - up front, in small groups, personal discipleship, etc.
Remember, we are the closest representation to the character of God that most of our students and youth leaders will feel and sense. Therefore, it is our honor and responsibility to represent Him in a balanced way.
