paying for youth group

there is an interesting little discussion going on in the ymx forums that centers around the general thought… would students come to youth group more diligently if they paid for it the way that parents pay for other things like dance, club sports, or even school sports.

my initial reaction is… parents do pay for the churches youth ministry. not sending their kids is really poor stewardship of Gods resources.

but here is a more interesting thought:

what if youth pastors got paid on commission?

maybe then youth pastors would be motivated to focus on reaching more than keeping?

after all, if it fair to ask parents to pay… wouldn’t it seem logical to make their pay dependent on the results?

of course, this is all hypothetical now isn’t it?
