A week ago I asked the question: should churches employ youthworkers? and its good to see its generated some feedback. Jon Bishop, Lewis Pearson and Pete Leveson (two of whom I know are Baptists) have offered their thoughts either in the comments or on their blogs. And someone called Tim has commented and started a discussion thread on the Youthwork website. I'd be interested in any further thoughts, especially from the likes of Ian at Youthblog (who was on holiday when I originally posted). I've followed up my original post with Considering a New Role for Youthworkers. It's good to try and shake us out of inherited or accepted thinking, which says youthwork and youthworkers must look like this and this and do this and this.
