Call to Youth Ministry

I Really wish you wouldn’t


Please don’t use youth ministry as a stepping stone. I know that there are times when people who are called to Youth Ministry later feel called to be a Sr. Pastor or a Worship Pastor or a church planter.

But if you know you want to be one of those, Please don’t become a Youth Pastor to gain experience. You are ruining kids and churches.

The other Youth Pastors around you know you are a phony, and your kids will hate you when they find out you were just using them.

If you want to be a church planter, go be a church planter, and leave Youth Ministry to those of us who are passionate about it.
