From time to time I post a question that comes into the blog for YOU to answer. What advice would you give this youth pastor who is asking about violence and accidents that happen during youth group. Was hoping you could share your thoughts in the comments, too. Weigh in!
I was wondering, when it comes to youth trips, how are chaperones funded in your ministry? Does everyone pay out of pocket? Are all of their costs subsidized by the ministry budget or fundraisers? Is there a split between the two? I was just curious as to what your policies are. How many “trips” would an adult leader have the opportunity – or even be expected – to attend in the course of a year with your youth group?
