Today I had the privilege of equipping around one hundred youth leaders in Fort Collins, Colorado. I was promoting the upcoming Survive Tour for Dare 2 Share and doing a training called “Youth Ministry Exposed.” What a great time of encouragement, openness and honesty about the perils, pains and power of youth ministry. My prayer was that the youth leaders who attended left refreshed and re-energized for the mission that lies before them.
I love my job. I really do. To be involved in impacting the lives of youth leaders is an amazing privilege. My hope is to come along side them and give them a few tools and a whole lot of hope as they reach out to teenagers with the love of Jesus Christ.
“Thank you Lord for allowing me the honor of being able to serve your servants and impact those who impact these precious teenagers. Be with them. Encourage and empower them. Keep their eyes riveted to you as they navigate the exciting, dangerous, sometimes monotonous and always rewarding world of youth ministry. I praise you God for giving me the privilege of ministering to teens and those who minister to them.”
