In the last post in this series, we looked at what it means to be a healthy youth leader.
The first element of youth leader health is a willingness to learn. I am not necessarily talking about college or seminary. There are some great programs and resources out there that include conferences, mentoring programs, and just networking with other youth leaders as well.
Here is where I’m coming from…
Would you go to a doctor that has been out of med school 25 years and has done ZERO continued education? What about a mechanic? Or a PC technician?
A willingness to learn new things about ministry and the families we serve is vital to a healthy state of ministry to students.
In the comments below, share how you continue learning as a youth leader. Or share the resources you use.
