In an environment where adults are constantly transitioning in or out of the youth ministry, teenagers silently wonder, “When is the next adult going to leave us?” Unfortunately, too many leaders end their time in youth ministry too early.

Youth ministry is not a sprint, and Doug Fields provides some essential questions that must be asked of all leaders to avoid burn-out and early departures.
