Friend vs. Leader: Getting the Balance Right

As you know this is such a tricky balance in youth ministry! In this training, Heather addresses this timeless youth ministry challenge.

How do you maintain your role as a trusted leader in a highly relational ministry?
What are the boundaries we need to keep as adult volunteers working with teenagers?

Learning how to balance leadership and friendship will provide the foundation your volunteers need to shepherd their students.
