From time to time I post a question that comes into the blog for YOU to answer. What advice would you give this youth pastor who is asking about traditions in their youth ministry. Weigh in!
I usually come back from the conference feeling like I can handle just about anything, but this year I came back feeling a lot different. My church has been dying. I’m writing to ask: how do you know when its time to leave?
I can see the final conclusion of our church’s current struggles and it would be me being asked to leave because there is no more money or children to eventually support a youth ministry. I’m scared because the only thing I know how to do is minister to students, and the opportunities to even do that are dwindling and would require a ton of sacrifice. Do I stay or do I go? Help. Painfully discouraged – I’d appreciate any insight or wisdom you may have.
I called this youth worker last week to talk through it and told him you would be weighing in as well. Take it to the comments!
