  • How would you grow this group numerically?
  • How would you help it grow spiritually?

Two even more important questions…

  • How would you make sure that what you did there would have a lasting impact on those students’ lives?
  • How would you make sure you left a ministry that would last?


I was in student ministry for about 14 years. I really loved being a youth pastor and I miss those days.

One thing that I hated to see in my own ministry was when students that you poured your life into, walked away from the Lord when they graduated.

The thing I hated that I saw, or heard of, in other groups was when a youth group collapsed and disintergrated when their youth pastor left.

I learned a lot in those 14 years to know what it takes to build a lasting student ministry, but I also wanted to know what others thought. I wondered…

What would the top student leaders do if they had to start all over?

No large church.
No large budget.
Just a small church with a small youth group.

So what did I do? I asked them!

This books author began interviewing 14 top student leaders, a year or so ago, and gave them the imaginary situation you just read at the top here.
