Featured Video #1 (Ignatius the Youth Pastor)

If you’ve been in ministry for any length of time, you’ve probably seen a few characters like this:

Ignatius The Ultimate Youth Pastor!

Ignatius The Ultimate Youth Pastor!

From the producer’s Vimeo site:

This is a video we (Student Life) produced for a free youth minister event called Refuge. It was conceived as a satire for what I consider to be an unhealthy “rock star” culture that has been growing inside Christendom, as well as an encouragement for the unheralded heroes on the front lines of ministry. Our friends at the event seemed to get a kick out of it. Shot by Taylor Robinson and George Wiley, with video post by Jason Poole and audio by Eric Chapman and Nate Dregger. The role of Ignatius is played by our friend Josh Keefer.

It’s well worth the watch:

Disclaimer: I was a youth pastor for six years, and I have nothing against them. I suppose there are senior pastors like this as well.

What do you think?

Is this an unfair characterization of some youth pastors?

What say you?
