Youth Workers for Life

A lot of paid youth and children's work in our churches is short-term. We see youth workers and children's workers as a stepping stone to 'bigger and better things'! How can we reclaim the value of this ministry in its own right and invest to train and deploy life-long workers in this area?

In this episode, Adrian Reynolds (Head of National Ministries) is joined by Trev Pearce (Senior Minister (Children and Youth), All Souls Langham Place, London) to talk about youth and children's ministry and how church leaders can value those who serve young people in the church.
