2nd Chair Leadership

Today, Andrew Zirscky (ymprof) and I have a conversation about what 2nd Chair leadership looks like in the local church.  As youth ministers, we are always 2nd chair leaders.  Listen in as Andrew asks me questions about how to navigate these relationships.

Some things for you to think about:

  • How well do you know your senior pastor or boss?
  • How well do they know you?
  • Do they know what’s happening in the youth ministry?  If not, have you told them about it?
  • Does your vision align with the church’s vision and your pastors vision?

As you grow as a youth minister, your ability to be a 2nd Chair leader is key to your success.

    Great stuff said. From my own personal experience, I have learned that at a certain point, when you have lost complete respect for the first chair leader, it is time for you to make a move on. That being said, as best as you can, choose wisely who you are going to be the second chair leader for.
