Moving from Programs to Relational Ministry
Relational Youth Ministry is any step toward building a relationship with a student in your ministry. It could be big, it could be small. Either way it’s an effort toward truly living in community and sharing life. Commit to building this type of community with the students God has entrusted to you. Find new ways to focus on building a relational ministry for your students to thrive in.
