MMI: Bench Warmers: How Churches are Sidelining Their Young MVPs

MMI: Bench Warmers: How Churches are Sidelining Their Young MVPs

This is an interesting situation. Something I've become more interested in as I've renewed my candidacy process and filled in coordinating the young adult ministry. It's also something that I don't see very commonly at Schweitzer. We've got a lot of young adults active in a variety of areas of the church – they serve on staff parish, trustees, church council, etc. Of course in the next few years many of these young leaders won't be so young any more. We do have a shortcoming identifying people in their 20s for leadership roles (other than volunteering with the youth).

What do you see in your church?  Do you have any suggestions?
