There are tons of things that I miss about youth ministry. The thing that I miss most is the impact that you can have on the lives of the young friends you spend time with individually and the impact they have on you. Caleb and I hung out tonight with his folks at Lone Star. We had a good meal but the best part was just the time spent together. One thing that can't be taught at Seminary or Bible College is genuine love; mutual love. I think that successful Youth Pastors are ones who make their "job" far more than that. They are the ones who love their young friends whether they come to a houth meeting and especially if they don't. They are the ones who go beyond. They are the ones who allow the relationship to become reciprocal! Caleb, thanks for reminding me; I love you dude!
