Cons to Working in Youth Ministry

October 1, 2008

There are many good things about working in youth ministry.  One of my favorite parts is a lot of the time you get to see the fruits of your labor.  You get to experience growth (hopefully).

However, there is one thing about working in youth ministry that is not good for me… or maybe anyone.


Candy.  We always have lots and lots of candy around.  I’ve never been a big candy eater until I started working at the church… Since we’re still a mobile church our mid week study meets in our church office.  Since we meet in the church office there is always a bowl of candy around.  

Diabetes here I come.



  1. I don’t really see what the problem is here. A never-ending supply of candy is on my list of requirements for a job. Is your church hiring?

  2. We’re hiring, but you need to be able to speak spanish so…….

  3. Wow, you are in luck because I just happen to speak Spanish. I’m not really wanting to relocate, though, so do you think you could just move the whole church to Colorado? It’s a pretty nice place.
