Are Youth Pastors Losing Their Voice?
10 years ago I entered into Youth Ministry. I was fresh out of high school, and passionate about Jesus. I remember how I was passionate about going to Bible College and becoming a Youth Pastor. Looking back these were exciting times.
My first year in Bible College I attend the Youth Specialities Conference in Sacramento. I was in awe that all these people were passionate about Youth Ministry. I also remember the leaders/speakers who were also passionate about Jesus, and helping Youth Pastors. I remember names like Mike Yaconelli, Marko, Tic Long, and many more.
I was and still am for these people who are speaking for themselves and for Youth Pastors around the world. I was reading over at Kurt Johnston’s blog, juniorhighministry.com, about how many of the people on Youth Specialities top 20 Youth Pastor Blogs are not in full time ministry. I think this is sad, and we need new voices in the world of Youth Ministry.
Who do you think are the new voices in Youth Minsitry? And what is the conversation?
