I had lunch with one of the adult leaders in our group this week, he asked the question, “What does it mean to have a successful youth program?” This, I think, is a great question. (and one of the reasons that this youth leader is so helpful…he asks great questions) A question that I can not answer on my own. Part of my answer to this question would include something to the effect of “many voices coming together to discern the will of God for the direction of the youth ministry.”
I have some thoughts on this subject but I want to think about them a little more. I also would invite you (the reader…whoever you may be) to help me, help us out with this question. Leave your answer in the comment line, link us to your blog, or email me at ggbolt16 [at] gmail dot com.
Hopefully, I will get some response and then we can begin the discernment process for figuring out what it means to have a successful youth ministry at First Presbyterian Church in Bend, Oregon.
