Josh Griffin what is the one thing you want the youth pastor population to know?

Be a servant. Think of yourself as below everyone else … because that’s how they see you anyhow. You will never go wrong when you put others ahead of you. Clean the rain gutters. Flip the pancakes. Wipe down the counters. Fill up the van. Be the first to arrive and the last to leave. Have boundaries, sure. Take vacation, of course. Even mark your day off as holy ground. But serve every day as the least for the Highest. Or … don’t. And be frustrated out of your mind every day. Mutter silent obscenities under your breath at the adults. Resent parents, needy students, and the leadership of your church. And make your stay in youth ministry short. If you’re a servant, you get it. And your students will, too. And eventually the whole church will. One thing? How about one word: serve.
