Being On Time

By Doug Franklin January 13, 2011

Getting your adult volunteers to be on time can sometimes be harder than getting your students to be on time. When adult volunteers don’t see a need to be on time they are communicating a ton to the students and it’s not good. I know they are busy and they are coming as soon as they can but when they aren’t there when youth group starts, students are learning that the youth ministry is a second priority to them.

Being late communicates a negative

Being early gives you time to connect with students

Being early allows you to focus your thoughts on students
