5 Things that Make Church work more Fun!

BY:

 

One of my firm beliefs is that youth ministers have an important task on church staffs … making working at the church fun!  Working at a church can be difficult especially when the staff does not have fun and celebrate.  For whatever reason, these things do not come easy to  churches.  We help others worship God on Sunday and then we turn church into a job instead of a vocation on Monday.

If you are a youth worker, then no matter what your age you still have enough youthful exuberance in you to be a leader and bring joy to your staff.  I’ve found that when you do all these things you earn the trust of the staff and church leaders.  If you focus to much on one area, then you can be labeled the church clown; but with perseverance they will join you in these things and find greater joy in their work and your community.

Over the next few days I’m going to give examples and unpack these things, but here’s the 5 things to get you thinking.

  1. Celebrate
  2. Play Together
  3. Laugh
  4. Share Stories
  5. Worship Together

When and how does your staff do these things together
