In My Third Decade

20+ years of youth ministry comes with it’s share of struggles and failures. In this episode I walk through four failures in how I approached ministry at different points along the way.

  1. Not catching the vision to invest in and empower leaders.
  2. Dumping instead of delegating.
  3. Siloing our Student Ministry.
  4. Letting my ministry = my identity.

I’m grateful that I’ve been able to identify these failures and grow through them.
