2 good resources for youth workers

Filed under: Videos,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 11:05 am

The 1st is a guest post by Steven Moore at  It contains 4 good tips for anyone who works w/ a group of teenagers.  Here’s 1 of the 4:

Compliment in Public / Correct in Private
Complimenting is important but easy. Celebrate and share their successes with others inside and outside the group. Correcting is equally important but NOT near as easy. Don’t shy away from a learning and growing opportunity for both you and the student. If a problem arises you may have to initially diffuse it in public, but address further in private. Don’t just correct, but also discuss the motives behind the offense, how a repeat offense can be avoided, the personal leadership potential in the student, and the influence they carry with others even if they don’t recognize it.

The 2nd is a video from Kurt Johnson & the Simpy Junior High Podcast on small groups starting off a new year.  While Kurt’s context is different from my own there are some really good info that can apply to just about any situation.
