Why Youth Pastors Need To Look Beyond Faith
As Andy at YM360 suggested, the aim of most youth pastors is to help ‘teenagers to know God and to see their lives changed as a result’. Youth pastors therefore tend to focus on the spiritual life of a young person.
This can cause problems when this is the sole focus though, as it can ignore the emotional and physical part of their lives, as well as overlooking areas they may be struggling in.
