I was reading a blog post by Bernadette Jiwa, she starts with this question,
If you had to pick one thing you need more of in order to succeed what would that be?
If you are a youth worker, and I hope you are, you may be tempted to say, “more students” , but is more students the right answer?
Would having more students make you a better communicator, a better programmer, a better youth pastor?
Having more students might get you off the hook with the board, the deacons, or your pastor but it will do nothing for you when it comes to actually pastoring those extra kids.
More kids is a result or more patience, more training, more prayer, more love, more outreach and more disciple making.
More kids won’t make us better, it will only reveal how unprepared we are for more kids.
I think it boils down to giving someone a fish to eat for a day or teaching them to fish for a lifetime. What if I could teach you to fish so you could reach the students you desire to fill your youth program?
I am starting a master mind group for youth workers soon, but to qualify for that I need to know your serious. Purchase my 30 minutes for $30 coaching package and you’ll be placed on a list of future applicants.
During this 30 minutes we’ll get to know each other and I’ll do my best to solve one of your current problems and help you get more of what you need to reach more students.
You can check out the 30 minutes for $30 here. I look forward to giving you more of what you need.
