More than Pizza and Fortnite: Defining Success in Youth Ministry
Youth ministry is paintball and glow bowling! It’s lock-ins! It’s Fortnite tournaments! It’s consuming absurd amounts of pizza and Mountain Dew! (Rolaids, please.) Youth ministry is ALL these things… AND more! But what matters most? How do you define “success” in youth ministry? Come be encouraged and inspired as we identify what matters most and celebrate a ministry that is more than splashing in the kiddy pool but instead boldly heading for the deep end.
