the BLACKBOARD: Student Ministry Team(s) Organization

As I’m looking at my Student Ministry Team and re-evaluating the effectiveness of it and how we can do better, I have some questions that I’m curious to hear what you all think about these questions below…

  1. Do you break your Student Ministry Team up into separate teams (i.e. Music Team, Program Team, Sunday School Team) or are they all 1 united team held to 1 singular job description?  Why or Why not?
  2. What is 1 pro and 1 con about having creating ministry teams within your overall Student Ministry?
  3. Where do student leaders fall into your ORG chart with your adult leaders?  For instance, do they come to leaders meetings, involved in adult leader discussions, etc.?  Or do they have a separate meeting designed strictly for them?

I would love to hear your thoughts on these questions and anything else you’d like to share in regards to Student Ministry Teams.
