HTH: Starting Well in Youth Ministry
Our friend, Scott Douglas, published a wonderful book last year called Start Well. Start Well is a book that applies to all areas of ministry leaders, but especially youth ministers. The practices Scott mentions in the book will help provide you with the tools to last for the long haul as a youth minister. We hear all the time about youth ministers leaving the ministry, or who only stay for a short time at their churches. By prioritizing our spiritual growth, finding a mentor, developing relationships, or working slowly, youth ministers can be more effective where God has called them.
