Title: An analysis of youth ministers' perceptions of character qualities, leadership competencies, and leadership flaws that facilitate or hinder effective youth ministry
Author: Temple, Troy W.
Advisor: Bredfeldt, Gary J.
Abstract: This study is an examination of the perceptions youth ministers have regarding the character qualities and leadership competencies needed for effective youth ministry. The study also examines the perception that youth ministers have regarding potential leadership flaws that may lead to ineffective youth ministry.

The researcher surveyed a sample from 1,300 full-time youth ministers representing youth ministers serving in the United States from various denominations as well as no denomination. A survey presenting a list of character qualities and youth ministry leadership competencies was sent to the sample. The respondents were instructed to rank each item from 1-3, 1 = primary, 2 = secondary, 3 = necessary. They were then instructed to list up to five potential leadership flaws that they believed would render a youth minister ineffective.

The researcher analyzed the data in light of significant prior research for common themes that demonstrated a needed emphasis in youth ministry education and training.

Key words . Youth ministry, youth minister, youth ministry education, adolescents, character qualities, ministerial leadership competencies, leadership flaws, church leadership, leadership effectiveness, leadership styles, leadership failure
