Two Questions: Michael Droege

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

Michael DroegeYouth and Family Ministry DirectorWilson Memorial Church, Watchung, NJ In each edition of GenOn Connect, we will ask one member of the GenOn Ministries Advisory Council the same two questions about intergenerational ministry: “What keeps you up at night?” and “What gets you up in the morning?” What keeps you up at night? I’ve been in youth ministry now for 30 years. As a career youth minister, I led “best practice” youth ministries both within the church and in campus ministry, as so many dear colleagues and friends do around the country.
