So this year our youth has started a new leadership role which is Outreach Coordinator. I've read the bylaws and from what I have process so far is that the Governing Board is in charge of Outreach Ministry within the individual CMA churches.
From what I know, this new leadership role within our youth is to stay connected with the church and it's direction on outreach. Directly communicating with the governing board whenever they go outreach such as house visitations of new/old members, evangelical purposes or whenever the oppurtunity arises to reach out to any person(s). The youth outreach coordinator is to organizing the youth to attend with the Pastor, elders, ect. as they outreach in hopes to fellowship with the board, elders and parents of the church in general. To learn from how they interact with people in terms of outreach and at the same time to hopefully give a connection with the youths of the homes or families visited.
My questions is this;
1. Is what I have understood with where Outreach Ministry stands in the CMA bylaws correct?
2. Is this a good way to stay connected with the governing board and even the parents of the church as a youth? (my youth group in particular is more scared of the board and parents in general. We look up to them as they present themselves. Scary, strict old men or women.)
3. Should the youth do more in terms of outreaching? And is that acceptable in the CMA? (example: do their own outreaching outside what the Governing Board does such as events or youth home visitations)
