Why Our Goal is to Save You Time & Money
We save youth ministry leaders time & money by creating year long curriculum, bundles, teaching series & game packs.
Before launching Ministry to Youth I was in full-time ministry for over 15 years.
Saving youth ministry leaders time is a personal thing for me, and here’s why…
Back in the early days of ministry, I was young and single. I spent just about all my time doing ministry related stuff: planning events, building relationships with students, coordinating weekend services, recruiting/training volunteers, etc.
I was also a full-time seminary student.
I had a passion for pointing students to Jesus and being a part of what God was doing in their lives.
I eventually graduated from seminary, fell in love with my wife Jena, got married and had three kids pretty close together in age (all about a year and a half apart).
Juggling the needs of a young family and ministry were difficult. I struggled for years with trying to balance the two.
About 5 years after graduating seminary, I took 1½ years off of full-time ministry and transitioned into another non-ministry job.
I nearly burnt out, and wasn’t sure if I would ever return to full-time ministry. My inability to set boundaries and find ministry/family/life balance took a big toll on myself and family. That toll was a 100% on me and I owned it.
God was faithful. He wasn’t done with me yet. I spent that year and a half growing, learning, healing, and developing a healthy work/life balance that would serve me for the rest of my life.
An opportunity came up, and I was ready to go back into full-time ministry. So, I went for it.
I learned a lot about self-care, myself, and God during my time off, and I was able to maintain ministry/family/life balance in my new ministry role.
Worst case scenario is that you burn out due to an overly busy schedule. Best case scenario is you’re not as effective in ministry as you could be. And somewhere in between is the anxiety and stress that wears you down because “you never have enough time to get everything done.”
So, when we launched Ministry to Youth back in 2014…I knew a big thing we were going to do is save youth leaders time. We save you time because you don’t have to create youth ministry lessons and games from scratch.
And of course, our 1 year curriculum and bundles save you lots of money.
Over the years our audience has grown quite significantly. Our website now reaches over 70,000 people a month. We send out weekly emails to over 120,000 youth leaders, and our Facebook page has over 35,000 followers. We’re humbled and excited to help so many youth & children’s ministry leaders save time and money.
