I linked my way through to an interesting blog called Once a Youth Pastor… and I found that I shared many of the same sentiments towards youth ministry. I’ve been a youth minister for about a year and a half and my views and philosophy about youth ministry, in general, haven’t changed. I think they’ve actually been reinforced by my experience. I mention this to prepare for my upcoming series about youth ministry entitled “Dancing Jesus: Why the Church Has Failed the Youth”. In the mean time read this post and then come back for the series.
