Youth ministry is a never ending job. There are many days that I come home from work exhausted, but I stay up preparing for the next day of work. Youth ministry is so worth the exhaustion and struggle, however, it very easy to get burned out. So how do youth ministry workers avoid losing their passion and quitting?

Important thing to remember is that God has gifted us uniquely and we need to allow God to use us in our gifts. For more ways to avoid burnout, check out Richard Parker’s post.
