Youth ministry has been a part of my life for many years. I love mentoring and teaching students and simply being a part of their lives. During my years at seminary I took sometime away from youth ministry and it felt like something was missing in my life. Recently I have made a decision to take a time of Sabbath from youth ministry. I realize that I need time to pray and reflect on where God is leading me in this ministry, and the ways that I can serve others. Even though I’m taking a sabbath, I will continue to be involved in the lives of students, although my involvement may begin to look different.
