Average Youth Ministry just posted a great blog about what to do when your youth group take a break or a vacation. For me this is a real issue, in my ministry the kids physically leave town as soon as there is a school vacation, so I am left with a different set of challenges.
Personally, the positive side of the mass exodus I face is that I get to spend quality time with the few kids that are in town, over Christmas I got to play a few games of golf with some of the teen guys and took a group of girls out for lattes more than once.
What about you? How do you cope when the church kids leave town?
