GIMME SOMETHING GOOD
Book: Josh McDowell’s Handbook on Counseling Youth (http://www.amazon.com/Handbook-Counseling-Youth-Comprehensive-Equipping/dp/084993236X/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1420575596&sr=8-1)
TIPS FOR CHANGING CHURCHES
Don't cut/overhaul any old programs your first 2 years, unless there is mass consensus.
Learn from your last experience.
Don't assume the grass is greener without a little manure.
Primary focus should be to build relationships with EVERYONE for first 24 months.
Bring energy & excitement, but also be an adult.
Don’t burn any bridges and work on building new ones.
Love your kids from where you left but remember they may now have a new guy working with them...let them become his kids.
