Spiritual Practices in Youth Ministry

A Rule of Life for Youth Ministry, Michael Bird – Video and Discussion Outline

Rev. Michael Bird talks about the Rule of Life developed by EYC and how it shapes their spiritual practice.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. What role does silence play in your youth group? How might we cultivate that, and what might happen if we prioritize silence?
  2. What role does food/fellowship play?
  3. What role does service play in our ministry?
  4. If our youth could name anchor points for their youth group experience, what might they be? Would they be the same that we would come up with for them? Is there anything stopping us from handing them those reins?
