Tim Schmoyer has an interesting post on what to do at the very first midweek youth meeting. Whether it be because you have moved to a new area, or because it is your first appointment as a youth pastor.

The best way I’ve found to build trust is to model vulnerability and let them see that you’re a real person who is not afraid to be open and authentic. If they see that you can be that way, they’ll feel safer doing the same with you and will naturally be more trusting.

There are some good suggestions on surviving the first few sessions, and is well worth a read.
