Doing Our Job
I am encouraged as a part of this group of youth leaders that we are doing our job. Paul starts off by warning Timothy about false teachers and encouraging him (in choosing others) to teach doctrine carefully and truthfully in 1 Timothy 1:3-4. Over the past year, both male and female students have assumed teaching positions in the youth group and the leaders have met with these youth to ensure proper instruction. As we focus on developing leaders, much like Paul was doing, we must pay particular attention to how we teach and how our students teach. This is a central and necessary characteristic of an effective leader. As a part of this team, I feel affirmed about our efforts with the youth and a renewed focus on student teaching. I pray these words of Paul will be echoed in the lives of our youth.
