Ten commandments for surviving in youth ministry (10 of 10)

Ten commandments for surviving in youth ministry10. Thou shalt be thineself. Don’t be fake, extra cool or someone you’re not. Kids can smell a phony from miles away and will immediately discount you for it. They don’t even care if you know all the latest music, have an outgoing personality or if you’re 60 years old. What they want is someone who’s real, who’s authentic and willing to be vulnerable, who admits weaknesses and mistakes, who’s excited about them and who’s passionate about God. That’s what kids want and that’s what kids need. Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
