Our church held its first youth program for the year, a good old fashioned vespers service. It was great to see the church come together. Young people laughing old people sharing – fun times. Many remarked that they were looking forward to next week. For those leading out in ministry this is humbling and overwhelming. In a short time interests are being piqued and expectations are being developed. This is a point where leaders can make the not so good decision of going it alone. We can choose to reply only on our own ideas or function under our own power. Rather than make that mistake its better to ask for insight.
What are some of ways to jumpstart an inner city youth ministry program?
How can we connect with today’s young people?
How do we empower/recruit others to support our youth ministry?
What are some suggestions for small church youth leaders?
