There is a huge difference! Youth Group faces inward. It is about forming a club, which is mostly about itself. Youth Ministry faces outward. Youth gather to support each other, while being equipped with ministry skills and an attitude to care for friends, families and the world. Youth Ministry gathers with a sense of mission and purpose that reachs out.
Peer Ministry Leadership provides the foundational, relational, equipping tools you need. If you are only doing youth group, then it is time to begin a ministry that reaches out every day, everywhere, and in every relationship.
