Built to Last: Longevity in Youth Ministry

Gary Garcia | The numbers don’t lie: the national average for youth pastors is just a couple years at one church before moving on to the next one. But if you want to have an impact on generations of students, then longevity is key to responding to the ministry that comes with the call. Gary Garcia has been the youth pastor at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship for the past 28 years. He will be talking about the things that have helped him last for almost 3 decades in youth ministry at the same church. Those topics include marriage/family, senior pastor relationships, parents, dry seasons, focus and more.
