Is Youth Ministry A Competitive Sport? Part I

Is Youth Ministry A Competitive Sport? Part I

“Where is everyone tonight?”

“I think a lot of them went over at First Church to their outreach.”

“Man, what is going on?”

Ever have this conversation before or after a youth meeting? I know we like to say we are not in competition with our brothers in Christ, and we are not. We, youth workers and programs, whether we realize it or not, ARE trying to stay competitive in 3 areas: programming, the A.D.D. nature of our students, and ourselves.

Like Stuart Smalley used to say on SNL: “Compare and Despair”
