Helping people level up is never not rewarding. In youth ministry there are abundant ways this can happen.
Staff can be given new creative platforms. Volunteers can initiate projects or take on leadership. Youth can be invited to try on different roles: preacher, usher, organizer. Parents, too, can be helped by the church’s youth ministry to level up. Books (like this one I just got) and articles and thoughtful conversation prompts all help.
Of course, it’s hard to help staff, volunteers, youth, and parents level up if you’re not trying to do the same.
