I am not young at age 47, and after 27 years in the harness in every imagineable role, I am in no way a novice. But my observation is that this is a small issue in modern church. Churches value administrative leadership WAY above functional contributions(evangelism, discipleship, prayer.) Administrative leaders are talk and teach about serving God and neighbor, adn their time and clout are too important to be much involved in such actual work. Young gifted people have no work to do, because they have no examples. Worst, they have no examples because the "elders" are too important (and usually too untested) to actually pull the plow in God's fields. In short, "leaders" are usually the people who talk, but do not work in God's vinyard. An elder who does both is rare and precious.
