A quote on youth ministry-moses style

Posted in Uncategorized on 22.02.10 by Merlyn

I love youth ministry. Really, there is nothing better. The authenticity of youth is profound. The adventure is kingdom-like. The journey is always filled with the Holy Spirit. Right now, I cannot resonate with this quote at all, because the current ministry setting I am is truly divine. I have felt this way in my career however. I have felt this way as a parent. I have felt this way about life and faith. It is the very nature of ministry–there are ups and downs; times of trial and disappointment, joy and pain….and yet…..

in the midst of it all, I would not trade a moment of it for anything. Are you in awe of the story God is writing in you? In your ministry? What does it mean to be truly called? To be working in the area that you are called, gifted, and passionate? What power in becoming and doing what THE CREATOR of the world made you for. There is no greater joy. In the words of an icon of youth ministry:


“What a ride!”
