I hate to bring the word “rules” into student ministry because I don’t want students to feel like our ministry is a class room or just like school. I want it to be a place where they can be themselves and express their struggles to other students and Godly adults. But rules or guidelines, whatever you want to call them, are important and without them your ministry will become pure chaos. We are currently struggling with what rules we need to set and how to enforce those rules. We have shared some rules in the past, but some students are not obeying them. I want to get your feedback on this and learn from what you are doing. Take the quick poll below and leave a comment explaining how you handle this issue in your ministry. Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts!
