In our book Out of the Shipyard, we discuss seven essential benchmarks in youth ministry: relationship, fellowship, worship, leadership, discipleship, ownership and mentorship. Cultivating each of these in a youth group will empower young people to take on leadership in their church.
For the next 7 weeks, we're talking about the 7 essential benchmarks in youth ministry. Visit this page each Tuesday for relevant suggestions on how to foster each of the seven ships in your youth group.
Next week: building relationships with young people.
