Ministers with teens

Over the last few days I've been giving a bit of thought to the benefit i had from having a senior minister with a teen in the youth ministry.

Now, i understand that in some instances the combination above can be one fraught with disaster and conflict, but not on my case. In my case, the partnership had numerous positives.

First of all, the guy in charge wants you to do a good job and succeed. He has high stakes involved... his kids!

Second, you get the perfect spitborad. You can pitch potential ideas and events to him and he can give you feedback as both a co-worker AND a parent. If you have an honest relationship, you can be told if the idea needs more work, or if the event has some bugs to iron out.
