Teens have an energy that is contagious and so often are overlooked as a volunteer resource in children’s ministry.
Reggie Joiner, in his book Think Orange, states that
Engaging a teenager in ministry is the best way to ensure a dynamic faith in God (that’s wonder), a personal identity in Christ (that’s discovery), and a responsive heart towards others (that’s passion).
Teens are looking for a place to serve and children’s ministry is a great way for them to get involved. Here are just a few potential service areas to consider:
- Worship Team
- Drama Team
- Technical Team
- Design Team
- First Impressions Team
How are teens serving in your children’s ministry? What benefits are you seeing both for the teens and the children?
