Welcoming The New

I think one of the best encouragements a youth pastor can get is from those students that are new to their ministry. Recently we’ve have new students coming to our youth ministry. I like to ask them, once they’ve returned several times, “What is it about this group that you like coming back?” Their answer?

“I felt welcomed.”

Our group opened up their arms and welcomed them. They talked with them, interacted with them, and made sure to know that they were loved. What better encouragement can a youth pastor receive.
