Volunteers are often times called the life-blood of student ministry. From small group leaders, to event chaperones, to worship leaders and all the other responsibilities that are filled, it’s not very hard to see the impact that volunteers can have on the success of a ministry but what does student ministry look like from the perspective of a volunteer.

Come join the conversation as Brent sits down with Stephanie Thorne, a long-standing volunteer with FUMC Fairfield, as they talk about student ministry and how the youth pastor can work alongside their volunteers to make their ministry efforts as efficient as they can be.

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.
