So I’ve recently been listening to the Parent Ministry Podcast put on by parentministry.net. It’s been the most practical ministry podcast that I’ve ever listened to. Andy Stanley’s Leadership podcast is probably the best on leadership but no necessarily practical for ministry at all times.
So back to the Parent Ministry Podcast, Kurt Johnston was on and he talked about being a great youth pastor learning to be a leader.
I’ve learned that I’m a leader and I’m learning to be a youth pastor. My strength is helping people take next steps and learning to process the environment around them and how they can take responsibility. Thinking ahead and thinking strategically.
However, our students need more and while I’m getting world changers as staff people and volunteers to cover those weaknesses. It’s still an area of growth for me.
So just thought I’d have you ponder this today. Our students need leaders and youth pastors. So which side of the pendulum do you swing?
Are you a leader learning to be a youth pastor or a youth pastor learning to be a leader?
