We Love Our Youth Workers – Coming to America

At Youth Specialties, I was introduced to an organization from the UK called We Love Our Youth Workers and had the chance recently to talk with the leaders of this movement about their plans to expand to the USA and Canada. We Lover Our Youth Workers has a simply mission to invite and hold churches accountable to loving their youth minister, youth pastor, or youth director.  They invite churches to sign a covenant and develop an actionable plan that will create a healthy environment for youth ministry.  There are 7 promise that are a part of the charter a church makes:

  1. We will pray and support
  2. We will give space for retreat and reflection
  3. We will provide ongoing training and development
  4. We will give a full day of rest each week
  5. We will share responsibility
  6. We will strive to be an excellent employer
  7. We will celebrate and appreciate

How wonderful would it be to see churches in the US creating fertile soil for youth minister and youth ministry growth!  If you would be interested in helping with the movement or getting your church signed up for the covenant, hold tight.  They are reworking the website from the Queen’s English to our well hmmm… modified English.   You can contact them and ask them to put you on their mailing list and they’ll keep you in the loop.

CYMT and YMtoday are excited about helping We Love Our Youth Workers as they seek to invite Holy conversation among the churches in the USA.  To learn more about what they are doing visit the We Love Our Youth Worker website.
