[Second-Chair Leadership Conversation]
Today, Andrew Zirschky (ymprof) and I have a conversation about what second-chair leadership looks like in the local church. As youth ministers, we are always second-chair leaders. Listen in as Andrew asks me questions about how to navigate these relationships.
Some things for you to think about:

  • How well do you know your senior pastor or boss?
  • How well does he or she know you?
  • Do the “higher ups” know what’s happening in the youth ministry? If not, have you told them about it?
  • Does your vision align with the church’s vision and your pastors vision?

As you grow as a youth minister, your ability to be a second-chair leader is key to your success.
