"I’m not cut out for Youth Ministry. It’s not my calling.”
“Youth requires way too much energy. And teenagers are so needy.”
“I’m barely out of Youth for myself.”
“I feel so awkward around teenagers. The conversation always bombs.”
“I don’t even know what’s ‘cool’ anymore so I definitely won’t relate to teenagers.”
Those statements above are all mine. Can you relate to them?
Honestly, I never wanted to do Youth Ministry. When I was thinking about career options after school, ministry didn’t even cross my mind. I studied Architecture, Ballet, and Chemistry, and I had plans to be a teacher at some point, too. When I finally got connected in church I found the Creative Ministry, and if you’d asked me what I wanted to do with my life when I was 21 that would have been it."
