Relational Ministry 101

Here are a few important things to remember when it comes to doing good relational ministry with young people:

  • Youth cannot be evangelized without a relationship
  • Focus on people, not programs
  • Be interested in souls, not attendance
  • There isn’t one correct relational style: God wants you to use the personality that he has given you to reach out to young people
  • The heart of relational ministry doesn’t change, but opportunity and location do

And most importantly: young people won’t care how much we know until they know how much we care.
