David Fraze | Youth Ministry is incredible and awful, fun and not-so-fun, rewarding and punishing, great on your family and…you get the picture. Youth ministry is a dynamic roller coaster of ups and downs. Like most roller coaster enthusiasts, the more drops, turns, and curves — the better. Youth ministry will not disappoint. If you want to thrive and survive the ride, you need to buckle up and listen to the safety instructions. Oh, and you don’t need to keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times. You can raise them if you want.
