While it’s not a “statistic”, it’s very easy to see that most Youth Pastors will start over ministries at 2-3 different churches during their time as a Youth Pastor. While this doesn’t necessarily happen for all, many Youth Pastors are walking into new groups trying to make policies, changes and start relationships… but is there something specifically that we should focus on? Are there things that we can use to hit the ground running that will help us be effective in building both relationships and the group that we are serving?

Come join the conversation as Russell sits down with Caleb Brimmage, the Director of Student Ministries at First Coppell UMC, as they talk about things that they have learned about starting in new churches as well as some “do’s” and “don’ts” on their experiences from different churches.

We would also love to have you join the conversation if you would like to be on the show! Shoot us a message on social media (@talkstudentmin) or an email ( to get a time set for you to be on the show.
