How To Have The Best Year In Youth Ministry, Ever!

When I was a full time youth pastor, I loved me some calendars and planners. Wall calendars were my favorite because I could see the next three months at a glance and make notes. One year, I was literally putting information on four calendars every time I came up with an event or meeting. I would put it on my phone, on my wall calendar, on my desk calendar and a personal planner I had. My calendar addiction was taking over, so I had to cut back. But, for all my calendars and planners, there’s one thing they couldn’t do for me, they couldn’t actually help me plan.

There aren’t a ton of planners made specifically for youth pastors and I began to think about what that might include. I would put calendars of course, but I’d also put articles about what’s important in the planning process, a teaching calendar for topics, prompt questions to get youth workers thinking about what they should be thinking about next and some questions to keep in mind. Then I thought, “Youth Workers, don’t just need a planner the need a playbook” and that is what I have created for you.

This playbook has all that I mentioned above and more. There are planning sheets, goal setting sheets, creative space to put your ideas and some inspirational quotes sprinkled though out. Why did I create this playbook? So that you can have the best year, ever, in your youth ministry. If you want to have a great year, you have to plan on it.

In the previous posts I shared how the different ways students could graduate. Now, the gate has been narrowed. Most states offer some sort of exit exam. What is the point of an exit exam?

“to make sure no students graduate or move on to other courses without proving they have mastered what they have studied.”

This begs the question “Have our students mastered what they have studied?” Never mind mastering what have studies, but what have they studied? How do we know if a student is ready to leave our youth ministry?
