FREE RESOURCE: Ten Questions to Ask Before Launching a New Program <CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD>

Last time you started something new, how did it go?

Was it amazing…or a terrible experience you hope to never repeat for the rest of your life?

As you look at your existing programs, how do you feel about them?

Is everything so awesome you wonder if you’ve already begun serving in eternity…or is there a train wreck on aisle three?

 

It’s important to consider these kinds of questions because they force us to slow down and take a look at the health of our ministry. In youth ministry, we can get so busy that we move on to the Next Big THING without reflecting on the past.

If we want to grow in our leadership, we need to do more than ask the questions above. Truth is, anyone can be subjective. (In fact, most of us are, most of the time.) It’s human nature to quickly form opinions in a knee-jerk response.

A good leader needs intuition. Great leaders also have wisdom. Improvisation is an essential skill, but so is planning for the future and learning from the past.

We need to go beneath the surface by asking the why question. Why was something good or bad? According to what standard are you comparing it to? When you can say, “Our weekend program is healthy because of ________,” you are on your way to wisdom.

Thinking strategically is a leadership skill anyone can learn, and the following 30-minute session will walk you through a detailed action plan for launching new youth ministry programs.
