While you're at it, and the real purpose of this post, check out two blog posts by one of Rethinking's bloggers, Brian Kirk found over at patheos.com. The blog posts are Distractional Model of Youth Ministry Part 1 and Part 2. I'm wondering, Youth Ministry Leader friends, what you think of Kirk's evaluation and recommendations?
The congregation I'm serving is getting ready to call a Coordinator of Children, Youth & Family Ministry. I'd like to be able to set a vision for this ministry and start off with someone who shares that vision and expectations. I'd love to hear your approach, thoughts, recommendations and advice.
