Podcast: The economy, ministry administration, and youth leadership

Topic / Podcasts

LIVE Youth Ministry TalkYesterday’s LIVE YM Talk was a bit a bit open ended again. We discussed three main issues: how the economy is affecting our ministry budgets, handling administrative responsibilities of youth ministry, and what to look for in someone when recruiting leaders for the youth ministry. I referenced a blog series I wrote two months ago called Youth Leadership 101 that reviews some qualities you should look for, expectations you should have, lists of what students need from adult leaders, boundaries that need to be set, questions you should ask a new youth leader, and a video on commitments they need to make.
