article picked up by Family Based Youth Ministry .org

A while back I wrote a post entitled "Our Journey Into A Youth-Pastor-Less Youth Ministry" describing the current process my congregation is developing in youth ministry. Brenda Seefeldt over at has picked up this story in the form of an article series that will develop over the next year. You can view part one here. Thanks, Brenda!


St. Brianstine said... seems that moving to a mentor based ministry is more fruitful than the one man show youth ministry...

SB-I don't know that it's entirely more fruitful...maybe fruitful in a different way. I spent way too long doing the one man show. I definitely like this approach better and think it's more in line with a healthy understanding of the church as a collection of gifts and abilities.

I'll post 2 more articles in the coming months about what's going well and what isn't.

Thanks for reading.
