YMS Episode 22 — Student Leadership

July 3rd, 2018

Developing Student Leaders is one of the most important aspects of our role as youth workers. It's also one of the most challenging. Are we ready to relinquish control? Are we ready to allow students to fail? Are we ready to work through the messiness of mistakes in order to discover the fruit and joy?

Steve and Mathew have worked through many aspects of Student Leadership. We've tried lots of ideas, forms and structures. Despite our many iterations, there are many things we haven't figured out yet. Maybe there are no clear cut answers. Nevertheless, we have had some success. Steve has three young leaders on his staff that our proof that we've done something right.

in this episode, we talk about what we've tried, learned, missed and messed up. We also talk about what may have worked along the way.

We'll keep trying, because we believe in students, and we believe our greatest achievement is to raise up the next generation of leaders for the church.
