My husband is an amazing Student Pastor. He seeks after God in prayer, delivers timely messages, connects with the students in our group on a personal level, and is a hard worker in everything that he does. But, like many others in the trenches of student ministry, he battles insecurity, doubt, and discouragement, almost on a daily basis. Please don’t take my words and assume that he is lacking spiritually or believe that I am speaking down about him. Instead, I think if we are all honest with ourselves, we know that these feelings are a reality of life. If we take an honest look at human nature, along with a clear understanding of the territory that comes with being in student ministry, it’s easy to conclude that most student pastors have at one point or another battled the mind games I have mentioned above. My husband is human, and the enemy of his soul wants nothing more than to attack him in his mind as it relates to life and ministry.
