In case you haven’t noticed, I love student ministry–I’m always talking about how much I love my job. But student ministry (like anything else) has its own unique challenges. The same things that make it so exciting also make it hard.
Students are in constant transition. This makes them very open to the gospel, but it can also make it very difficult to keep up with them. Sometimes it feels like . . . well . . . try to heard a bunch of cats.
Here are just a few things that can happen over the course of the school year:
*A student leader you’ve developed can transfer to another school.
*Inclement weather can shut down school for several days, which interrupts ministry.
*Students graduate and move.
*A Bible study group can get splintered if the members are no longer classmates the next semester.
I’m sure other student ministers/leaders can relate to what I’m saying here. Let’s keep facing the challenges and do all we can to reach the next generation.
For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.
