From time to time I talk to youth workers who are frustrated by their church’s position on alcohol and drinking. Some don’t have a policy, others have one that is strict and some have no policy at all. At our church, we have a strict no-drinking policy for those of us on staff.

As for me personally, alcohol has never been a part of my life. I’ve worked at a church since I was 21, and both of the churches I’ve served at had a no drinking standard. I’ve never had a drink in my life! But, I understand the tension some youth workers feel with their church. It inspired this week’s poll – vote now and check all that apply! Very interested in the results!
