I have a question for you. I’m doing Young Life. We have the school is about 15 percent minority, and Young Life is about 40 percent minority. The problem is that the 40 percent of the minority kids are really hood, the type that throw balls during the talk and are on cell phones and what not!
I know they come because I’m a leader, but I feel like it’s stopping from being most effective in the school, because most of the 85 percent of the white kids are afraid to come to club. I love the people I lead with, but I don’t want to make them ineffective. Do you have any advice?
I’ve been wondering if stepping down is the answer, or maybe starting a Young Life group with just those kids!
