This topic has been on my mind because many ministries are selecting leaders for next year and planning for the Fall.
If I had to consolidate and summarize the ways I have seen leadership positions used in ministry three images come to mind:
Major Upside: Motivates students to take initiative and pursue something valuable.
Major Downside: Taps into performance mentality and compromises long-term fruitfulness.
Major Upside: You temporarily calm down an immature student :)
Major Downside: You temporarily calm down an immature student :)
Major Upside: Rewards behavior that's ALREADY happened
Major Downside: Hardest to integrate into ministry culture
