Gold Nugget Advice for the Volunteer Driven Church


Within the CRC, only one-third of our churches have paid youth workers — either part time or full. As a paid youth worker, what gold nugget of advice can you give to the volunteer in a volunteer-driven church to encourage them in ministry?

Marcel, You bring up a pressing topic. I think we need to chang the structure so there is a large parent envolvement. If you have a paid youth leader, all the better. One person or couple will burnout rapidly just due to the energy differences. The key is getting parents to value there children enough to set aside two evenings a month for the churches youth.

  The youth need to be incorparated in most facets of the church. This has to be a joint effort. Including all ages< so we can build community in the churches body. The possibilities are endless.
