The Decades Speak: Lessons #11-15
It is hard to believe that over thirty years of youth ministry have already passed. What a journey it has been! I often say, "The years will teach you what the days never know."
This series, "The Decades Speak," is a compilation of thirty of the most significant and impacting principles I have learned along the way. It's a wealth of insights and lessons learned through the hard knocks of youth ministry over the years. Let this resource be encouragement and strength for both your own heart and for your ministry.
Lovingly on Your Side,
This is Part 3 of 8, covering Lessons #11-15
Lesson #11 - Remember and prioritize the youth ministry three-legged stool...Pray your guts out, Work your guts out and Love their guts out.
Lesson #12 - Don't react, respond...handling conflict in a Christ-honoring way.
Lesson #13 - The biggest enemy of your youth ministry...dealing with your own mind games.
Lesson #14 - Build a fence atop Youth Ministry Mountain...taking people to the mountaintop with you.
Lesson #15 - Resentment is allowing someone who's hurt you to live rent free in your mind...keeping bitterness and unforgiveness out of your heart and mind.
