Ten commandments for surviving in youth ministry (7 of 10)

Ten commandments for surviving in youth ministry7. Thou shalt communicate as often as possible. Informed people are usually supportive people. Communicate well and often with your Sr. Pastor, other staff members, parents, students, volunteers and your spouse! Sharing ideas and plans will eliminate a lot of unnecessary problems. Furthermore, communicating struggles and ministry complications with your pastor on a regular basis will save your back and maybe even protect your job when a situation blows up. (I’ve experienced this first hand.) It also builds trust and an atmosphere of teamwork. If you’re not sure whether you’re presently communicating enough, err on the side of too much communication via a variety of methods rather than find out later that it wasn’t enough.
