Need a Little Patience

I recently read an article that stated how important it was for youth workers to have patience. I immediately thought: “uh-oh, I’m in trouble”. Patience is definitely a virtue I did not receive in plenty.

A young adult told me the other day that maybe we should look at the Sabbath differently. See how her perspective helps us rethink the Sabbath.

Together.

She can’t believe it! Relationships are actually work? How can this be possible. Love is, after all, an emotion… right? That’s what Google tells me.

Leading a Youth Mission Trip?

I am hoping to lead my youth group on a mission trip this summer in our city of Seattle. I have never lead a mission trip before, so I am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed with all the components.

Missional Youth Ministry: Beyond the Event

Youth Ministry has been messy. It’s a new focus in the life of a congregation, arising less than 150 years ago, gaining significant momentum in the last 50 years. Recent changes in culture are also redefining what it means to be youth pastors. So what is the way forward?

Is Modern Youth Ministry Biblical

This is a very interesting film regarding Youth Ministry: http://dividedthemovie.com/ We don't segegrate in the Church based on race or sex (male/female) so where did the idea come from to segegrate based on age. You don't find it in the Bible.

Are We Listening? [Video]

There’s no doubt about it. Many youth in this generation are leaving the church. But what if we looked at this as an opportunity instead of an outrage? What if it’s not the person of Jesus Christ that these students are running away from, but rather the claustrophobic nature of our churches’ four-walled worship?

The "Dear" Letters – The Parent

I’m not going to pretend like I can relate to you as a youth pastor. I don’t have kids yet, and I don’t have the level of commitments you do as parents. But how about this? I’m a pastor, and sometimes us pastors get so caught up in “doing God stuff” that we forget to “participate in God stuff.”

The "Dear" Letters – The Student

Can I first just say, I totally feel you. You may not realize this, but us youth pastors and your teachers LOVE summer. We too like lighter schedules and laying at the beach. But how about this? This year could be a new beginning for you!
