He said, “He made it clear to me that I’m not cut out for youth ministry.”
I said, “Fair enough. When did you realize it?”
He said, “Well, I loved being with students, but the church seemed to feel like I wasn’t doing my job if I wasn’t in the office 40 hours a week. I thought youth ministry would be ministry to youth—getting time building relationships with students... not primarily office work.”
That is a sad and true story. The church invited him to be the youth pastor for the summer, but they didn’t really understand what a good youth pastor should do.
That raises the question: What should a good Disciplemaking Learning Community (DLC) do?
I hope you know by now that the answer to that question is found in the disciplemaking genius of Jesus.
