Chapter two - The Need For Volunteers
- Wednesday, February 14, 2018
As we continue working our way through chapter two of, Sustainable Youth Ministry, by Mark DeVries, I wanted to take a few minutes to talk about volunteers in our youth ministries. Listed as number three of Mark's five NORMALS (read my comments on numbers one and two by clicking here) we read that the recommended ratio of volunteers is 5;1. That's one adult for every five students.
chapter two - The easy button
- Monday, February 12, 2018
As we look at chapter two of our year long study of Mark DeVries book, Sustainable Youth Ministry, I have to confess that there was a time when I looked for what I thought was the easy button. Fortunately, it wasn't a very long season of misdirection. Instead, I learned early on that easy isn't always easier.

When I started student ministry as a kids still in high school, I was all about getting groups of students together for whatever event we were doing. Lock-ins, bowling parties, hayrides, summer camp, winter retreats; it didn't matter, the bigger the better.
