Happy Thank a Youthworker Day!

We are a unique bunch. That is an understatement.

We are also an under appreciated bunch. Almost every day I see a post, or have a phone call, or talk with one of our tribe who is struggling to know that what we do actually matters. It’s a blessing to be able to assure my co-laborers that each one of us truly does matter.

A few years back, when YMX was still active, I had the privilege of helping write and gather a series of essays titled “You Matter…” which details all the different ways a youthworker matters. I hope you’ll take the opportunity today to read one, or two, or all of them, because they are absolutely true.

If you need a more visual representation of how much you matter, please take a few minutes to watch this video from The Skit Guys called, “The Chair.”

Thank you for serving students in Jesus’ name!

    Patti, in all my years of youth ministry nothing ever moved me as much as “The Chair.” I have a DVD copy I still pop in on occasion to remind me that what I did all of those years was worthwhile. Thanks so much for taking the time to remind all of those still in the trenches that what they do is important.

      It is such a huge source of encouragement, I have it bookmarked for times of need. Thanks for coming by, Carl! We who have some years in this field behind us have the privilege and responsibility of encouraging those who are coming along. I appreciate you!
