Five stages of a youth pastor’s life:
1. Who is Pastor X?
2. Get me Pastor X.
3. Get me someone who preaches like Pastor X.
4. Get me a younger Pastor X.
5. Who is Pastor X?
There were two people walking down the street. One was a youth pastor. The
other didn’t have any money either.
How do you make a youth pastor’s car more aerodynamic?

Saint Peter is checking id’s at the Pearly Gates, and first comes a Texan.
“Tell me, what have you done in life?” says St. Peter.
The Texan says, “Well, I struck oil, so I became rich, but I didn’t sit on
my laurels–I divided all my money among my entire family in my will, so our
descendants are all set for about three generations.”
St. Peter says, “That’s quite something. Come on in. Next!”
The second guy in line has been listening, so he says, “I struck it big in
the stock market, but I didn’t selfishly just provide for my own like that
Texan guy. I donated five million to Save the Children.”
“Wonderful!” says Saint Peter. “Come in. Who’s next?”
The third guy has been listening, and says timidly with a downcast look,
“Well, I only made five thousand dollars in my entire lifetime.”
“Goodness!” says St. Peter. “Where did you serve as a youth pastor?”
