Here is one guys take:
The ideal youth pastor…
Passionately loves God. They are devoted to studying scripture for themselves, to constant prayer, worship and sharing Him with others.
Passionately loves their family. They place their family before ministry and invest time into them more than anyone or anything else.
Passionately loves students. A gimme, yes, but not to be taken for granted.
Passionately loves free time. They regularly take time off from ministry to relax and re-energize and they don’t feel bad about it!
Passionately leaves a legacy. They know people are watching them and they live the godly example contagiously.
Passionately leads the ministry. They set the tone and vision for the ministry and remember that they’re a leader before they’re a friend.
