Youth Ministers and Facial Hair

Yes, you may have noticed the odd background I have chosen for my blog. However, as I think of most youth ministers I know, a background with different facial hair is entirely appropriate!

I have been asked many times, "Do ALL youth ministers have facial hair?"

And here are my answers:

1. "Yes, that way the parents can tell us apart from the teenagers!"

2. "Yes, because that's what Jesus would do."

3. "Yes, it's what sets us apart from 'other' ministers!"

4. "No, some youth ministers have back hair, nose hair, and shoulder hair, but no facial hair!"

5. "We're youth ministers. We don't have TIME to shave!!"

6. "Yes, if God blesses you with wonderful facial hair follicles, you ought to put them to good use!"
