Ignatius, The Rock Star Youth Pastor

I’ve seen this on several different blogs lately, and it definitely gives you a good laugh at the expense of the current church culture. Unfortunately, I thought of several youth pastors that I have heard speak.  Youth Ministry is so much more than just being cool and relevant.  It is all about building meaningful relationships with students as we teach and model the truth of the Bible.   It’s all about Jesus, and we must get out of the way so that Jesus can be seen.

from the creators of this video: This is a video we produced for a free event for youth ministers. It was conceived as a satire for what I consider to be an unhealthy “rock star” culture that has been growing inside Christendom, as well as an encouragement for the unheralded heroes on the front lines of ministry.
