Be Faithful to the ONES

Awesome article from Will Hutcherson! Never lose sight of each individual student that walks into your ministry!


My first perspective of student ministry was not your typical story. When I started, I was working full time at a very large church as the programming and production guy in a student ministry with a weekly attendance of 600. Over the course of 5 years and multiple youth pastor transitions, the attendance never went below 200. Needless to say, I had a very narrow view of what student ministry looks like. That is, until my first pastorate in 2006.

I had moved to a new city to attend Southeastern University and was given the chance by a faithful pastor, Don Ewart, to take a part time youth pastor position for a small church of 50. The student ministry that I was asked to lead had a weekly attendance of 5, AND, 3 of them were brothers! When that one family didn’t show, we lost over half the youth group!
