I was hired into a church that had a youth group consisting of 6 guys who were so excited to have a full time youth pastor just for them.
What's happening at NewSpring Church?
These guys were the definition of a holy huddle. They literally thought I was hired for them and them only. When I talked to a few of them to find out why it was clear, it was those 6 guys. They had taken over the youth group and made it all about them.

This holy huddle needed to be broken up and hearts and attitudes needed to change in order to reach the potential that God had for us. If our goal is to be like Christ and reach students for Him here are some ways to break up the holy huddle. When it comes to the ministry you lead often times YOU are the one setting the tone. I totally understand that sometimes you are hired into a situation where students have this attitude or you inherit them or whatever but too many times youth pastors and youth leaders are the ones facilitating it.
It starts with the mission and vision that YOU have in place. Is your mission and vision one that is outwardly focused?
No More Holy Huddles
Or does the holy huddle mentality actually fit into your mission? When I was hired into a holy huddle situation it came as no surprise that the youth group had no mission or vision for their direction and that is one of the reasons they ended up where they were.
I think every youth worker would agree that the holy huddle mentality is not a good thing but a lot of times their actions in leading the group do not reflect that. Part of breaking up the holy huddle is to stop facilitating it and set the tone. Make it a part of the DNA of your youth group so that it becomes second nature to them and holy huddles have no place in your group.
