Stories from the coal face introduction

cface.jpgA while back I talked about wanting to get “Stories from the Coalface!” The idea of this was to gather employment, end-of-employment and transition stories from youth workers/ministries working (or formerly working) in a Christian setting.
The idea was to have some stories to reflect on about how people had ‘ended up’ where they were, or why they were no longer there! There had been an idea of doing some question based research on the experience of youth workers/ministers, I prefer I think to listen to stories and see what can be learnt.
So tell me a story! (and especially forward this on, or link me up with people who were in youth ministry but no longer are).
Stories will follow!
