Youth leader tip

This bonus is just for the
youth leader—a quick tip and illustration to enhance your youth leadership. You may already know this idea, have already learned it through trial and error, or maybe just need a quick reminder. Here it is in a quick infusion.




With a small youth group, it’s usually easy to learn the names of the young people quickly. The larger the youth group, or the more it changes, or the worse you are at remembering names, the more you need to practice. Because relational ministry is so
important, calling a person by their preferred name is a "must have" starting point. Swallow your pride, and use their name as often as you can. If you don’t remember, just admit it
and ask again, and again, and again. Then you can go on to deeper things after you’re consistent with the baseline of knowing the names of your youth.
