As annoying as this is they have to do it. Too many young men have gotten involved with students, both of-age and under-age. One day when I hire a young man or woman to lead the youth I will have to re-itereate that relationships with the students are now allowed. However, it never fails that a handful of young impressionable girls are going to fall in love with the older and wise youth pastors; especially if he plays guitar. If the youth pastor is a female it tends to happens less but I know that if I were a teenager and we had a cute youth pastor….. I may have had a crush on her. I have to admit, if I had a daughter who was of age and a senior in HS and she had a crush on the youth pastor….
The Scripture I Use to Teach on Marriage, Sex, Dating and Relationships
At worst, the pain and awkwardness of those continued interactions between the former-couple leads one or both of them to drop out of youth group altogether; sometimes for a season, and sometimes forever.

My concern is that the man who has been her youth director at church, is married and in his late 20’s. He has been her youth pastor since she was a seventh grader, and now is her supervisor at her job in the child care at church. They have become very close, and he is becoming possessive of her, spending a great deal of time emailing and talking on the phone. She spends a night every week at his home.
He is married, and my daughter is incensed at my discomfort over the seeming lack of boundaries and professional ethics. He believes she is not true to herself or completely honest with him. A couple of months ago, the entire youth group was scheduled to go on a half-day hike; nobody showed up but my daughter, and the two of them went up to the mountains together anyway. I know I have cause for concern, not only for the potential for physical involvement and the consequences, but for her emotional vulnerability and attachment and dependence on him and his opinion of her.
How can I deal with this without causing a serious rift between my daughter and me? He has now had many years to get to know her, and is telling her that it will cause him pain if she goes away to college. For many years, you have had uncomfortable feelings about this man and his relationships with your daughter and other girls. Get together with other parents who have had similar experiences regarding their daughters and this man.

You remember the girlfriend or boyfriend you had in high school, right? Did it happen? If so, then congrats! Communication is a broad word, but for good reason. The ways in which we communicate with students who are dating can be just as broad. When we teach in a large group, in small groups, in classes, or during one-on-one discipleship, we communicate to students who are in dating relationships, and we need to be aware of them.
I personally think of the students in our ministry who are dating while trying to formulate series on love or relationships or when developing illustrations to communicate a biblical insight. Simply being aware of these relationships help us shepherd our students well during our teaching ministry. A student has a recent break-up, and they are upset. You need to talk about something? When we run a student ministry, trying to find a balance with our families, and anticipating the next church drama to deal with, we think of these break-ups as something so small and insignificant.
This is not so in the mind of a student. They were bought in to that relationship, for some, in sinful ways. They gave themselves away in ways they might never have back.

When do some of you challenges get your information for your LOVE pastors? I mean, you have called this man a boyfriend, a student, and a rapist so far. Nowhere has it been said that these two people have a physical relationship.
There is no law against them spending student when. It is a good love you are not able to form a lynch student. I will agree their relationship is not a good idea in OUR “culture”, but I would also suggest in times past it was not such a “repulsive” thing.
