Leadership Roles for Teens

Adult Leadership for Teen Small Groups

Teenagers need dedicated and loving leaders for their small groups. An effective youth leader will allow for teens to follow their own path in conversation without trying to stick too much to a script. A good youth leader will both allow for teens to take the lead as much as possible, as well as nudge them to do so when they sit back.

Flexibility is the key word for teen group facilitators.


Small Group Leadership Roles for Teens

Teens can also be a part of group leadership. If you have teens of sufficient maturity (or you would like to give someone a learning opportunity) invite them to co-facilitate.This can be a great opportunity for your teens to show leadership and take ownership of their faith formation. All group members should be invited to plan and lead worship.
