Typically the only person who loves a meeting is the one running it.

It’s an understatement to say that it can be difficult to get your ministry leaders to show up for another meeting. However difficult, we believe it’s important for leaders to gather with their team.

When a team fails to meet regularly, it’s easy for the leadership culture to drift. Small and subtle changes will slowly appear! Some examples: the weekly program begins to end later than originally designed, ministry values are “suddenly” forgotten, disagreements go un-voiced, mistakes go uncorrected, and before long the primary leader of the ministry begins to think, “What happened?”

Over time, this drift can create a rift and the ministry’s impact can become significantly impaired.

This week, we’ll look at the positive impact that meetings can hold for a youth ministry leadership team:

…| Leadership teams meet to REMEMBER what’s most important.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” (Matt. 22:37-38, NIV)

All of us—rookie or veteran—face the temptation to cut corners on our personal spiritual lives. Serving in ministry creates extra pressures that push against our priorities. Spending time alone with God isn’t something that typically gets noticed by others. No one will ever say, “Hey, I just wanted to say ‘way to go for having a great quiet time today!’” But, if you put all your time into serving, you’ll most likely be recognized and thanked by others. It can be very easy to fall into the trap of craving the approval of others. When leaders gather together they can take intentional time to focus on loving God first, and THEN loving others.

Remembering what’s most important, and hearing it from the leader of the ministry, will definitely lead toward a healthy youth ministry.
