Those who do youth ministry are rare. Owners of the vision of youth ministry are even harder to find. Those who own it as their own life calling are an endangered species.

Last night I had the privilege of taking Sarah Merk- my partner in crime in high school- and 7 key students who all graduated this last year and truly, truly, truly owned our ministry out for a thank you dinner at BJ’s. It was fun to see then as they head off to college and see them making decisions to stay involved in ministry both locally and across the state. They are the “owners” that keep me going some days. Now I pray that their big shoes get filled fast.
