Aaron Salvato sits down with Calvary Vista youth pastor Aaron Sabio to discuss 7 Ways COVID-19 Has Impacted Youth Ministry:
- It’s become challenging for youth pastors to connect with youth online.
- The stress of added church responsibilities on top of regular youth responsibilities.
- Fighting the “Why Bother” mentality when you feel like you’re competing with other churches that have such a bigger and better online platform.
- The challenge of preaching to a camera and feeling like it’s not as impactful as in-person sermons.
- The worry of job security when many churches are now having to make cuts.
- The inability to plan ahead for big events like summer camps.
- Re-learning how to rest in a season where we feel like we have to constantly be “doing”.
