Between the camps, events and trainings summer can fly by for a youth minister. That’s because summer is a break from the usual. The tendency is to fill all the FREE TIME that’s been created.
But, it’s easy to fill it with the wrong things. The activities and opportunities you must fill you summer schedule should help you grow. Here are 6 MUST DO’s that I highly recommend:
1. TAKE A VACATION…SERIOUSLY
Doesn’t matter if summer is busy or laid back. You must take a vacation because of the grinding year that lays ahead. Ideally you should block out about 10 days. If you cannot get that much than settle for four.
The first day (or two) is about unwinding, the rest is about enjoying. You can go away or maybe just book a hotel in town. A vacation is breaking away from the usual. In the end you’ll feel refreshed.
