Top 5 qualifiers for quality Student Ministers

Matthew Smith is hands down one of the most gifted Student Ministers I have ever worked with.  I will say that I am very thankful for others that I have worked with in the past and am indebted to them in many ways.

  1. Able to teach the Bible – This must take place in every student ministry.
  2. Able to commit time to students – You can’t qualify yourself as a student minister if you are never with students.  It just doesn’t work.
  3. Able to be an adult – As with the children’s minister, this person cannot simply be an older version of the teenagers.
  4. Able to train adults – In order for the student ministry to function long after the student minister is gone he must raise up quality leaders and train them to be successful.
  5. Able to equip parents – Discipleship begins at home!
