12 Things I’ve Learned In Youth & Young-Adults Ministry:
  • Your biggest strength is the personalized time you give each individual. 
  • You can’t meet everyone’s needs, but you can meet them for lunch or coffee. 
  • The quality of your preaching isn’t as important as the way you present yourself on a daily basis. 
  • Your biggest measure of success is the daily transformation you see in each individual. 
  • Honesty and transparency are key in gaining someone’s trust.
  • You can’t fake it. They’ll call your bluff. 
  • Don’t expect anyone to do anything you haven’t or won’t do yourself. 
  • A pizza party will never mean more than a personalized letter or phone call. 
  • The second you stop learning is the second you should probably stop leading. 
  • Being relevant does not meaning watering down The Gospel. 
  • They don’t need someone to tell them how to do life. They need someone willing to do life with them. 
  • You will never be perfect. So don’t expect them to be either.
I still have much to learn, and I pray that God will continue opening doors for me. But as for the last five years, these are the twelve things that I have realized the most.
