Finding Rest as a Weary Youth Pastor with Curtis Zachery

“You are more than what you produce. It’s hard to believe that. Because the only way that you have learned to measure your consistent presence in your position is based on the outcomes. But God is looking at you and saying ‘I’m already proud of you.'”

In this helpful workshop for Rooted 2023, veteran youth worker Curtis Zachery shares a pastoral perspective for youth pastors who steward complex and ever-changing ministries. From his personal experience, Zachery helps youth pastors see their need for prioritizing their time with Jesus, learning to love him, and accepting the rest he offers us.
