Totally Catholic Youth Ministers Lounge

Are you in youth ministry and you've had it with crazed parents? Rollin' your eyes at the pastoral council? Tired of administration work? Love youth? Love the Church? Appalled at parish politics? Looking for some good games? For a creative ways to teach a lesson for Religious Ed? Just need a place to veg out and say "phew! Someone outside of the parish to talk to!"? Grab y'r Starbucks, turn the computer away from the staff's eyes, grab a seat on a donated dusty couch and let it all go.

You're Not Alone

I was perusing Youth Specialties and found this latest article. Can you relate?

If you are unfamiliar with the Barna Group, they do a great deal of statistial analysis of church related issues. It's generally geared towards Protestant Churches and their polls seem to more highly reflect that population, but some of their findings can relate to Catholics as well, particularly this poll on being a"pastor' in ministry.

Of course we don't call ourselbes pastors, we use the term "Youth Ministers" but there are some simliarities in what they've found. I think so, anyway.

I could be wrong. It happens.
