The Shadow Side Of Youth Ministry
This Youth Leader's Coach is a very unique discussion. I am calling it "The Shadow Side Of Youth Ministry."
Statistics tell us that 1200 ministers leave full time ministry every single month! There are a million reasons for that, but a huge answer is found in this issue of us having a "shadow side" that if not recognized can get the best of us, pretty much taking us out of the game. Because this is so key, let us honestly reflect on the paradox of personal pain and how it relates to our walk with Christ and our leadership style in youth ministry. And then let's look at several of the most common "shadow sides" and the telltale signs to watch out for in your own heart and ministry. If not recognized they can become areas that will destroy you if you let them get bigger and bigger.
