Dealing with Difficult Leadership

Youth ministry resource on dealing with difficult leaders, pastors, elders etc.

Have a hard time trusting leadership? Not sure you want to follow your pastor's lead, or maybe you just flat out disagree with them? Are you tempted to argue with them a lot over things big and small?

Jesus has called us to a life of humble gentleness, even in these challenging situations. And it's through this imitation of Christ's meekness that we find the wisdom and strength to be an agent of change when the opportunity presents itself. But many times the only thing we have control over is our Christ-like response (or lack there-of) to difficult leadership, so let's start there.

If you have a hard time responding to difficult leadership, I encourage you to spend some time diving into the scriptures and praying these scriptures over your life. And please share your experiences in the comments below--let's encourage each other!

 

Verses to Consider

Romans 13:1-2

1 Peter 2:13-17

Matthew 5:5

Galatians 5:22-23

 

Additional Study Options

Do a word study on on the words "meek" and "gentle"

Read through the Gospels and make special note of Jesus' reaction to difficult leadership. He didn't make a whip turn over tables every time!

Three years ago, Nate started Called to Youth Ministry with a desire to equip and support youth pastors. It started after he noticed a trend of people with a passion for students "go it alone" for too long and otherwise burn out, without a friend or mentor to stand by them. Now the ministry hosts online training and networking groups that leaders can join from anywhere in the world. Youth ministers from California to Florida to the UK have already benefited from the coaching, community and prayer support these groups provide.

Two year ago, Nate also started an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) company with a desire to feed his family. Now he enjoys balancing the two and being able to use the business to support his ministry habit.

Nate lives with his beautiful wife, Christa, and rambunctious two-year-old son, Josiah, in Lake Geneva, WI.
