I don’t know many student pastors who would say that they are perfect.
But I know of at least one who thought he was.
Seven years in student ministry has certainly taught me a lot. I wish I could say that I learned by listening every time advice was given to me.
The truth of the matter is that I learned a lot of my lessons by failing. I might even go so far as to add “failing in a HUGE way.”
For the next couple weeks I’m going to highlight some of my more spectacular failures and what I could have done differently in retrospect.
As my pastor would say: Learn from my dumb taxes.
Take a moment to read and to gain some insight into student ministry and how it can be done right (and how I did it all so wrong at times).
PS – That student pastor (me) no longer thinks he is without fault. He fails now with the understanding that it was coming sooner or later.
