This research study is an examination of the relationship between leadership styles and the longevity of youth ministers. Leadership styles are measured according to the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire. Interviews with veteran youth ministers provide in-depth personal advice and guidance into an extended career as a youth minister. The literature review includes a biblical and theological foundation for Christian leadership, an overview of leadership studies, and an examination of the importance of youth ministry. The research endeavors to prove a connection between leadership styles and youth ministers with extended careers.
