This guys is on the move and making a difference in youth ministry. If I were you I would subscribe to his blog so that you can read all of his latest post.  Are you free Friday afternoons around 2:00 PM EST?  Join Tim and other youth pastors from around the US on a live youth ministry conference call.  Visit timschmoyer.com   for more details.

We’ve all had them — students who cause trouble, play on their cell phones all night, are disrespectful, and generally seem mad at the world. Although we love these teenagers as much as we love the others, sometimes it feels like we’re constantly sacrificing the quality of the ministry to all the other kids for the sake of that one (or three or whatever).

When I had my first encounter with this kind of situation, my sr. pastor at the time gave me this advice and I’ve followed it ever since: “Never sacrifice the ministry to all the kids for the sake of one or even a couple.” If, because of one or a couple disruptive students, other kids in the group are not receiving the attention they crave, the spiritual input they seek, and the time to focus on God that they need, then a course of action is needed. read the rest here
