Walking Ancient Paths: Revisiting Roles for Service in Youth Ministry

From: Volume 3, Issue 2: Fall 2006 Pages 316-329


This article considers how the work of youth ministry flows from an understanding of the minister's identity. Ten roles for professional and volunteer youth workers are offered as a theological framework through which to view ministry. These roles reflect the identity of Jesus and represent the multiple tasks of youth ministry. Implications are briefly discussed as they relate to individual giftedness, recruiting volunteers, and hiring youth ministers.
