I have been part of youth work since I was a teenager where my father served as my first youth leader and then later started youth groups, a youth cafe, ran the Evangelical youth alliance in Hamburg for 10 years etc.
In this I love to encourage youth leaders. It is estimated that youth leaders today serve only between 14 months and 3 years in their ministries. How can we help them to stay? What are their current needs?
One response is the European Youth Ministry Network with bi-annual European gatherings, a learning community while visiting inspiring youth ministries and various other activities. Interested?
I also travel throughout Europe and invest into youth leaders, teach at their national gatherings and mentor some of the event organizers.
