Do you love pizza?

If you love pizza, and I mean love it so much you could never get tired of it, consider becoming a youth minister.  I’m only half kidding.  I’ve been involved in youth ministry for about 16 years, and have reached a point in my life I think I’ve had enough pizza.  My profession is working with high school age youth, and the favorite meal of teen age students, especially if it’s an informal gathering for some occasion, continues to be pizza.  In addition to what we get once a week in the cafeteria, I spring for pizza once or twice a year in BCM (Baptist Campus Ministry, formerly BSU).  We’re also involved in drama, and I drive the bus for a couple of sports teams.  At church, we’re sort of leaders for the youth leaders, who are upper level high school to mid-20’s.  So after Back-Yard-Bible Club, planning for VBS, get together with the mission team, we go for a round of pizza.  For that matter, one of our church deacons OWNS a local pizza establishment, and his daughter is one of our leaders.  There’s no escaping it.

I’m not complaining; not really.  I’m just trying to share from my experience.  If you’re crazy about pizza, find a position doing what I do.  It’s like perpetual college student diet (assuming you went to a Baptist college that didn’t allow beer).
