We Must Always Be Sowing

Evangelism is a hard thing. I've experienced that in youth ministry. We can't give up on sowing seeds if it's hot outside or we are sweating a lot! We can't give up because its hard or inconvenient.

Available and Intentional

In the six months I have been doing my job I have come to realize one thing. One of the most important things I can do for my students is be available and intentional.

Focusing Inward

Sometimes in youth ministry we may miss a greater point. There are students who bail on youth group for sports, yes, but the great thing is: There are kids who still come! And that's exciting!

First Name Basis Only

When those kids come to Youth Group we need to know them on a "first name" basis only. They need a chance to be themselves and create their own persona rooted in Christ.
