Youth Worker Sound Off: The Best Youth Ministry Advice You've Been Given

[ym360 Note: The is the third post in a series we'll run every once in a while, where we bring the voices of youth workers to the blog. To read the other "Youth Worker Sound Offs", click here and here.] Last week we ran a contest on our Facebook wall to give away a free copy of Tim Schmoyer's new book Life in Student Ministry. To enter the contest, we asked that youth workers answer one question. The question? What is the best youth ministry advice you've ever been given? We received close to 80 responses! We included the top 20 in this post. (To read them all head on over to the ym360 Facebook wall.) Check them out! Who knows: maybe you can learn something from the advice that's been passed on to these youth workers. Feel free to pass along your own "best advice" in the comment section at the end of the post.

Andy

Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries.

Jim

Never stop reading!

Clay

The best advice I ever received was from one of my student ministry professors. When asked about discipleship he said that discipleship is not teaching a class or preaching a sermon. Discipleship is about living life with our students and letting them see just how much we love Jesus and how our lives reflect that.

Holly

It'll be the hardest, most stretching thing you'll ever do. But Christ is with you, and it'll be worth it.

Kris

The M.I.T. (Most Important Thing) is your walk with God.

Chad

Disciple while being discipled.

A.J.

Stay true to the Word. Preach the Bible, Jesus, and the Cross.

Chadwick

Attend at least five funerals and two weddings before you try to make any changes in programming. Earn the trust capital to make the needed changes. With student ministry, this can be extended to include attending ball games, taking late night phone calls/texts, and walking with students and families through difficult times. Earn their trust first, then implement the vision God has given you.

Tammy

âÃÃ"You can not give what you don't have." I need to be filled up before I can pour out to others.

Chris

That you can't please everyone.

Noah

You're the captain of the boat. It's not a captain's job to make sure the boat doesn't rock, but that the ship stays pointed in the right direction...âÃÂâÃÂBasically: Stuff is going to happen, make sure you keep sight of the destination of your Student Ministry.

Damien

Don't try to be cool...try to connect!

Bud

Focus on what God has called you to, compare yourself only to Christ and scripture and adjust accordingly.

Matt

Don't be afraid to go slow when starting at a new ministry.

Steven

Don't focus on numerical growth; focus on being a healthy group. Anything that is healthy grows.

Benjer

Given to me by my college pastor before accepting my first YM position: Build a great team of leaders right off the bat; make it a priority even over getting to know students.

Rick

#1 Get out now.âÃÂâÃÂIf you choose to ignore #1, then...âÃÂ#2 Commit at the beginning to be there until the end.

Rob

if you teach truly, you'll truly teach.

Karen

Stop trying so hard and just be yourself, be transparent. Do life together...relationships are better than programs.

Tim

Know how and when to delegate responsibilities... you can't and shouldn't do everything on your own.

And a bonus piece of advice . . .

Jody

Try the fajita burrito. (That one's an inside joke, but still, really good advice.) So . . . What advice has been given to you that you found super helpful in doing ministry? Pass it along in the comments section below!
