Hello, all! For those of you who I've conversed with, many of you know that right now I am working as the Director of Middle School Ministries of my church. Due to some various issues with the Student Minister, he is resigning his position effective next month. The Personnel committee has already met and has offered me the position of Interim Student Minister. After 3 months, if everything goes as it should, I will be presented to the church as the full-time Student Minister. We have about 250 high school and middle school students on roll. I just turned 25, and this will be my second position where I am the leader of an entire ministry. As you can imagine, I am filled with both excitement and a little bit of fear. I have seen God work in the middle school ministry and I am convinced that our church will see Him work in the high school ministry as well. Here's my question: Have any of you dealt with such a transition? I don't see too many students or parents who are fiercely loyal to our current student ministry as far as that goes - people who would be considered "troublesome" like that. There will be several things that will be changed, and I've got a big job ahead of me. However, what do any of you think about specific situations to be aware of when transitioning from one way of doing ministry to another? Thanks, all!
