As a teenager, you have a lot of authority figures in your life, some good, maybe some not so good. In this lesson, we talk about how God deserves our respect, and if we want to respect him, we need to respect other authority figures as well.
Every team needs to meet. Meetings are where we reaffirm our commitment to the mission of the team, share ideas about how to best accomplish the ministry, celebrate victories, and think through how to tackle the challenges we face.
As a student leader, you are part of the larger youth group team at your church. You are also part of the larger leadership team of the entire church. Teams succeed when everyone works toward the same goal, and goes in the same direction.
As a youth leader you are an example. You are an example for the students in your small group, and the students in the rest of the youth group. You are an example for students in your own grade, and younger students. As a student leader, you need to take your role as an example seriously.
It’s important to understand the goal of youth ministry. We want to help students become followers of Jesus who make other followers of Jesus. As a student leader, our desire is that you would learn to make disciples.
