Was talking to a youth leader who is in the middle of transition – looks like his youth ministry position is about to evaporate due to lack of funding. I sent him an email and then copy/pasted some of it to share here on the blog. Just a few random thoughts if you are about to walk through transition:
- God loves your ministry and those students even more than you do – they is a key thing to remember that when things look bleak or especially when you get frustrated with the leadership of the church.
- If the position is going away for lack of funding – is there any way you can help raise funds, promote the ministry to key players or raise your own support?
- Transitions are painful but a reality of ministry – God might be using this to move the ministry in a new direction, or move YOU in a new direction.
- As a leader, make sure you are also a willing follower of God’s nudge. And always be willing to stay if He is asking that of you as well.
