Today we talked about, “Having and raising children in full time youth ministry,” led by our featured guest, Josh Christian. We have a great time sharing stories and laughing a lot, but we also talked about some tricky situations that can come up by being a youth pastor or full time youth director and having children, both little ones and teenagers, who are involved at the church.
Some of the things we talked about:
- Setting boundaries and priorities
- Taking your kids on youth trips and to youth events
- Taking your kids to the office with you to work
- Having your own teenagers in youth group
- And a lot more…

Next week’s discussion
September 11: Next week LIVE YM Talk is with guest, Dennis Poulette, who will lead us in a discussion about cross-cultural youth ministry. Many of us have teens in our youth group who are not the same race or come from the same culture as we do, and Dennis will help us understand how to best reach those teens who are foreign to us.
