I'd like to try an experiment. I realize that this blog is not the most interactive place on the internet, but I am going to ask a question and ask for your input. I think the more answers I get, the better, so let's try this out. Here goes. It is no secret that I have been looking for a full-time youth ministry position for quite a long time. In this period I have spoken to a host of search committees. You can get a feel for what a committee is looking for by the questions they ask, but there is one question they all ask.
What is the most important issue that our teenagers are facing today?
I know I have a few youth minsters who read this blog regularly, please give an opinion. This question is not limited to youth minsters though. How would you answer this question? If you were on a committee, what would you be looking for. I look forward to reading your responses, then next Wednesday I'll post my answer
