Getting Fired for the Glory

Getting Fired for the Glory of God
Mike Yaconelli writes a hot article here that I think will strike a chord with many in youth ministry… and ministry in general. Here’s an excerpt:

After spending time with youth workers from all over the world during the Youth Specialties National Youth Workers Convention, there’s no question in my mind that our calling to youth ministry and the current condition of the institutional church are on a collision course. I’m beginning to believe that if those who are called into youth ministry follow the lead of the One who called them, getting fired is inevitable. Why? Because, in general, the institutional church doesn’t get it. The institutional church has become hopelessly corporate, hopelessly tangled in a web of secularism. Instead of the church being the Church, it has opted instead to be a corporation.
