Rank #1: TLH076: Reasons to Leave Youth Ministry

Podcast cover
Read more
We, the Longer Haul Podcast team, are committed to... well... the Longer Haul. That's why we do the podcast. We know though, from experience that there are times when God makes it known that it's time to move on. There are seasons of change.

The big question we all face is how do we know when it's time to leave? If God doesn't send a burning bush, how can we determine his plan regarding the current church we're serving in? These are hard questions and are often super emotional.

In this episode, we tackle the reason WHY you should leave your church and the reasons why you should NOT leave your church. PLUS, Jody shares some personal news related to this very topic.

Let's face it. Jimmy Fallon is funny. Well, at least most of the time. Don't get us wrong. We're not making a major moral endorsement for who and what he's all about. But rather, we want to take a minute and consider how Jimmy Fallon is pretty much a youth pastor minus Jesus and a youth group. And on top of that, he does it WELL.

In this episode, we talk about lessons we can learn from the Tonight Show and youth ministry programming.

So why an episode on finding a youth ministry job?

Hopefully, you know that our goal at the Longer Haul is to help you achieve longevity in youth ministry.  For us we think of this in two ways, staying in youth ministry for the longer haul, and staying at your church for the longer haul.

Both of these are really important for lasting influence and joy.

We also understand that the reality is you may find yourself having to look for a new position (check out episode 76), or heck, maybe even your first youth ministry job.  If that is the case, we want you to be able to navigate that well.

So, in this episode, we tackle how to go about finding a youth ministry job, what to ask, and some really important "what-not-to-dos."

What does it take to see students in your youth ministry actively and consistently sharing their faith?

Getting students to live out and share their faith can be tough.  I mean let's be real, getting them to see their schools as a mission field and notice the lost around them can be difficult.  Getting them to actually share the gospel?  Well, that's another thing altogether.

In this episode Greg Stier from Dare2Share Ministries offers up a ton of wisdom.  In this interview you'll learn the values that exist in an evangelistic youth ministry, what it means to be a gospel advancing youth ministry, and a REALLY cool event that Dare2Share is hosting to help you equip your students to share their faith.
