What’s your story on how you ended up in youth ministry?
Share how God lead you to youth ministry.
Spiritual Self Care
We all know that the church is amazing place, but for those in ministry often our own spiritual care is put aside. Come with your struggles with this. What ideas and ways have you found to help work against this? If you have any resources that help you bring those to for show and tell. For each of us, this will look different in our own journey, but seeing other ideas always helps. If you feel that you are drained but have no ideas, then you should definitely come!
Share Your Stories: One NOT GOOD moment in youth ministry
We all have stories, and it is good to share them. Hearing them help to encourage all of us. These stories help remind us that even when we try hard to get it all right, when it comes to youth ministry, there is no way to plan for everything. Come ready to share your stories on times when it just didn’t work out and funny stories you have had happen!
Share Your Stories: One great moment in youth ministry
We all have stories, and it is good to share them. Hearing them help to encourage all of us. Last month we shared the not so good, this month we will share a moment in youth ministry that is one of those that keeps you going. The kind of moments that remind you why you do what you do. Come ready to share your story!
What do you see as the future of youth ministry?
This could go anywhere and I am very excited! I can tell you, I don’t think we are talking about what is the next 10 steps to a great event, we are talking BIG PICTURE STUFF.
What are some of your youth group’s meaningful traditions?
These can be traditions either at church or during retreats. This is for us to share those traditions that your group does that are very meaningful to your youth. It could be something you do for seniors, those incoming to youth, something special your group does. It is great for us to share ideas about these things.
It seems we all have a bad taste in our mouth about it. Bring ideas for what works for your group, if you have anything. We will also be brainstorming other options and ideas. Maybe with our powers combined, we can come up with a few things that might really help.
