Oil change places have a great selling point, they will check X amount of things on your car for one price. It sounds invasive. It sounds like they’ll take the whole thing apart and put it back together. We feel pretty safe because they will check x amount of things.
The rub is, when they check x amount of things, that means it may cost me more money. It may cost me a fuel filter or windshield wiper, but that’s o.k. if I really need them. Sometimes I say no, but it always cost me later if I do.
Today I’d like to offer you a free inspection tool from time to time. This resource is 17 Point Post Youth Meeting Checklist broken into three categories, People, Program, and Personal. It’s helped me reflect on what is important (people), what I can get better at (program), and what to take to heart and what not to take to heart (personal).
When was the last time your did an inspection on your youth ministry? Do you know what to look for? Do you need some help? Give me a call and I’ll be glad to get my overalls on and take a look under your hood.
