In Episode 4 of the Ministry to Youth Podcast, we interview Jonathan McKee from The Source for Youth Ministry on the topic of “How to Balance Family & Ministry”.

More specifically, we discuss:

  • Why is it so hard to balance family & youth ministry?
  • How do you balance family and ministry if you’re a volunteer leader and also work full-time?
  • If you’re a full-time youth ministry leader, how do you work smarter?
  • How to avoid burnout in youth ministry.
  • The real reason you’re out of balance and what to do about it.

Jonathan gets real in this episode and shares about a breaking point in his life as a youth ministry leader. He talks about a time when ministry and family was way out of balance and what he learned through the experience.
