Youth Ministry and Humility

Humility always wins.

You can try to build a youth group on charisma, momentum and sheer force of personality … and quite honestly, it will work for a while. You can build programs, events, services and but sooner or later it will implode. Humility builds other people rather than building our personal following. Pride builds a youth ministry around you at the expense of building it around Christ. Pride stunts growth. Pride is empty. Pride is lonely. Pride sucks us in then spits us out.

Let’s start out 2014 with a commitment to humility this year!
