Youth Ministry Leadership Coaching: 3 questions Leaders must ask when facing opposition

 In light of the various challenges Youth Pastor’s face working on a Church staff, we should come to terms with the concept that as Leaders, opposition is almost a guarantee. When Paul told Timothy to fight the good fight, it was not a prescriptive text, but it very well could be. In Nehemiah 4, we find three groups of people we will encounter when facing opposition, and are given three questions that as leaders, we must process through in order to overcome our challenges and move forward.

When you face opposition, what is the real opposition you are facing?

Why do you fight? Personally, what is the mission you are trying to accomplish as a Youth Pastor? What are you trying to defend?

Which group of people from Nehemiah 4 is your greatest downfall when facing opposition?

  1. As someone who, as of last night, is in the middle of opposing opinions as to how our youth ministry should change, I really appreciate this video. Thanks for reminding all youth workers to ask what it is we actually are fighting for, versus what we think are fighting for, and to think about what it is God is trying to do in those situations. I love this site and am so encouraged by all the awesome things the contributors share. Thanks for sharing your experience, wisdom and knowledge.

  3. Awesome. I really appreciate that. Meditating on what is my motivation for this fight helps me redirect my focus. So simple yet we can lose sight. Thanks for this bro. God has spoken.
