Don’t act you haven’t wanted to make this list:
- Going to meetings instead of hanging with students.
- Meandering through an inbox for hours.
- Students walking out during the message or worship for the restroom.
- Cliques within a student ministry.
- People who think Youth Pastors just play with students all day.
- Not knowing if a student on their phone is using YouVersion or playing Temple Run.
- Students who have read every Hunger Games and Twilight book, but make no time for the Word of God.
- Parents who think Youth Pastors are responsible for their students spiritual development.
- Not having enough mentors for students who want to be discipled!
- Students who live short of their potential.
