Really youth ministry happens through relationships. Tonight I was privledge to hang out with one of our guys, Jordan, who rocks. We played some Wii and we talked about our cell groups. I thought it was good, and I need to do more of this kind of ministry, slowed down, relationship oriented type things.
I think it would be interesting to see what percentage of effective youth ministry is done scaled back. The show and production is great, but that isn’t really how you connect people to Jesus in a lasting way.
One thought on “Slowing down the pace of youth ministry”
My experience is that although this is the most important aspect of youth ministry, connecting with the young people, its also one of the hardest. Is that because of the time, effort and sacrifice it requires from the leaders?
