The start of a new year gives us an opportunity to reflect on the previous year, set goals for the upcoming year, and refocus ourselves for what’s ahead. But as ministry leaders and youth workers coming out of a very busy season, what’s the best way to refocus and reset as we begin a new year? This week, join ministry leaders for a conversation about what it looks like to recalibrate your faith, invest in yourself, and prepare for the next season of ministry.



What do you think recalibrating your own faith means? (7:30)

There is a tension between having a passionate relationship with Jesus because you love Jesus, and having a passionate relationship with Jesus because you’re telling students about Jesus and you need something to say. (11:00)

As a leader, you don’t want to be in a position where you know exactly what to do. That’s not where our hearts come alive. (17:00)

Our hearts come alive when we’re in over our head and we have to depend on more than ourselves. (17:30)

Part of recalibrating your faith is finding whatever stirs your heart again and reminding yourself why you started doing this in the first place. (20:00)

Ask yourself: “Where does my faith come alive the most?” (20:30)

Our greatest gift to this world is for what God created in us to be thriving. (25:00)

One way to recalibrate your faith is to be intentional with the boundaries you create. (31:00)

If you’re shamed for taking care of yourself, that’s not a leader worth following. (34:30)

When was the last time you did something you aren’t paid to do? (38:30)
