How to get fired in youth ministry [video]

Topic / Videos

A few years ago I found a comical list on my computer titled, “Top 10 ways to lose your job in youth ministry.” I’m not sure where it came from or who wrote it, but I posted it in 2007 and then last week I revised it a bit to turn it into a video.

I do know that two of the latest revisions came from youth workers when I asked about this video on Twitter and Facebook. YPastorMark on Twitter deserves credit for number 5 in the video and Rob Johnston on Facebook deserves credit for number 2 in the video.

By the way, this is only meant to be fun and in jest, not a serious jab at anyone or anything.

If you enjoy the video, please share it, give it a thumbs-up, and leave a comment beneath it on YouTube.

    never tried any of these, and probably won't want to see what happens if i do! :)

  • Hahahahahahahahaha!!! This is great! I'm going to have to share it with my fellow youth workers!

    Oh, and I was left behind at a homeless shelter in Tennessee. Not as traumatic as being left at an orphanage where English was NOT the first language spoken, but scary nonetheless!

    Number 11. Post a video on the top ten ways to get fired. Sorry about this bro. Healing will come, just not as soon as you think you need it.

    • haha! Yeah, that was actually in the back of my mind when I made this video. I was hearing too many stories from other YPs not to do it, though.
