Today, we finish up our conversation about our ideas for building a strong youth ministry team.

WORSHIP TOGETHER
It’s important to take some time to worship together when you meet with your team. This time will serve to focus your hearts on what matters most and remind your leaders that worshipping God is more important than doing the work of God. Your team meetings don’t need to replace your normal church worship service, (just like your leadership community isn’t a church within your church), but it can become an important time to do something significant within an sacred community.

SHARE SOLUTIONS AND SUPPORT
It’s a dangerous myth to think and act as if the point person ought to have all the answers to the issues revolving around your youth ministry. This type of leadership will severely limit a ministry. Actually, it’s our observation that it’s the number one fatal flaw appearing in unhealthy ministries. Build your team by creating “space” for everyone to be able to help one another. Brainstorm solutions together, ask for feedback, and appeal to and rely on the wisdom of others. If the leader of a ministry has to care for everyone on the team, it’ll be a small team because one person can only care for a few people.

HAVE FUN TOGETHER
There are times when the best thing for a youth ministry team is to simply play together. Eat food together, watch the Super Bowl or Grammies or Emmys (or any “important” yearly show) together, play a game of softball or bunko, or if you’ve got some nerdy types on your (like Matt), play some video games together. Your ministry doesn’t exist for everyone to be entertained, but some timely fun can strengthen a team’s bond. Laughter and play are good for developing a healthy leadership community.
