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




You can determine a church’s priorities by examining its allocation of resources. The church’s budget and programs demonstrate what is important to the congregation. So does allotment of space. How much space is allocated for adults? What about youth? How about the children? Often different groups need to share the same space. When that happens, who chooses what that space will look like? This can be a matter of taste, but it can easily be a matter of power. When youth are given space at church to personalize it, that church becomes “their church,” which is what even the adults actually want.
