Deadly sins of Youth Ministry

I posted this musing about the seven deadly sins of youth ministry some years ago but I thought I would revisit it and re-post. So here’s the updated muse:

  1. Making yourself the focus of the youth ministry
  2. Isolating the youth ministry from the life of the Church
  3. Instilling Information not facilitating encounter, exploration and action
  4. Modelling an eternal adolescence
  5. Avoiding accountability
  6. Not maintaining your own inner life
  7. Thinking you have nothing more to learn
