A while back I posted a monster of a document I called my Philosophy of Ministry. In reality it was a gigantic brain-dump that was part of a college project I had to do back in the day. I didn’t realize until I put it out here just how much there was to that thing, and most of it mediocre at best! If nothing else, it lit a fire under me to finally revamp the thing and make it manageable.
So here is my Philosophy of Ministry 1.5. It’s not really a complete document. But it does a much better job of concisely summing up how I approach ministry. It’s been especially helpful for me to work through this given I’m in the process of transitioning into a new ministry. Some day it will be a full revision…but as we know, youth ministry is an ever-changing world, so this will never really be “complete.”
