    How To Not Be Used In Youth Ministry, A Problem Worth Discussing

    How To Not Be Used In Youth Ministry, A Problem Worth Discussing

    Youth ministry is important work that can often suffer from competing visions of what is best now and next. This week's episode highlights the feelings that come around expectations of what is the next best and how we ought to get there even if/when you disagree with your boss.

    It's a hard look at an important topic of who and how you might start feeling used for what you can do versus who you are in the middle of it all.

    In this episode Chad and Zac relay the importance of owning the process of keeping the vision clear, the work in front, and perspective on what it means to be called and faithful.
