One reader posed a question to me in a comment to a recent post: “Do you still think you have the youth ministry bug?”
If youth ministry means investing in the lives of young people for the good of God’s Kingdom - Yes! I’ve got the bug.
If youth ministry means a program-centered approach officially sanctioned by a local church - No! I don’t have that bug anymore. (and it has nothing to do with all-night lock-ins and being in my late-30s)
