How does everyone feel about having young ppl taking on leadership roles in churches and ministries? Everything from Pastoring to Worship Leading being Youth Leaders, Small Group Leaders, etc.

Do you think there should be an age limit?

What are your opinions?

     I think there is 2 sides to the age question in 1 Timothy.  Chapter 4 vs 12 says:  " Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity."  I sometimes get the impression that Christians think that God's kingdom is a gigantic union, those with the most seniority should get the best jobs.  It doesn't work that way in capitalist -economics or God's kingdom.  If the Lord has truly called a young person into the ministry, we should not despise their youth.  The other side of the age question would be chapter 3 vs 6 that says a Bishop "should not be a novice lest being puffed up with pride he falls into the same condemnation as the devil".  Being successful can go to your head and young people can't handle it.  Vs 7 also says, "he must have a good testimony amoung those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil".  Young Christians do not have enough experience in the world to be respected by those outside of the Church.  Satan knows how to manipulate this and he will, it is wise for Church leaders to be respected by unbelievers because of their experience.
