Back in The Saddle

It has been years since the main thrust of my ministry was Student Ministry. Don't get me wrong, I have always ministered to the Students of the Churches that I pastored, but I would only get to spend a fraction of the time with them that one might want to. Student Ministry was always special to me as a pastor and I never let it be a back burner kind thing, but as the Lead Pastor (I don't prefer Senior Pastor) I was responsible for a greater extent of ministry. This mean that pet projects and personal ministry tasks would have to take a back seat, but the people I ministered to could never be told to "go to the back of the bus" because they matter and are loved. I would often find a way to have a hand in the direction of the ministry or create a change to participate. Several times as the Pastor I taught Sunday School or was the assistant teacher. I would arrange events, create moments to minister, be their pastor just like I was for all members.

I also find it ironic that after over a decade in ministry I am right back where I started so to speak. Involved in Student Ministry! This journey will be fun. It will be great to see if the things that I now know because of Seminary and Pastoral experience help me in discipling the new generation! I hope you will follow the journey of ReYouth.
