Stuff Jesus Wouldn’t Say at Youth Group (part 2)

A couple years back, I wrote an article with tongue entirely in-cheek entitled Stuff Jesus Wouldn’t Say At Youth Group. Since then, I’ve had several more “inspirations” for funny things you’d NEVER hear Jesus say at Youth Group. Here’s the list… Can we wrap this up soon? I’m missing The Walking Dead.  Ok, you caught me…I […]

Taking a break in ministry

Ministry NEVER ends! There is always another student in need, another lesson to prepare, another meeting to go to, another game to watch, or another event to plan. A person could easily work from 8 am til 10 pm 7 days a week and still not get everything done. Still, its ministry, right? Its important! […]

Review – This Week in Youth Ministry Podcast

Podcasting has been around for about 10 years. In recent years, the genre has taken off as everyone now has the internet all the time in their pocket.

Planning a parents meeting

How to meet the parents. Wait a minute…not THAT Meet the Parents! If you are in ministry more than 2 minutes, you hopefully will have seen the importance of meeting with parents. It is important for a number of reasons – you partner with parents (instead of fighting against them), you share your passion and […]

Relationships Matter

When I graduated High School, I (briefly) attended the University of Cincinnati before heading on to Bible College. I don’t remember much about my time there (willful blocking out of memories, not some alcohol induced haze!) but one of my more vivid memories involves one of those street preachers who often stood on main thoroughfares […]

App Review – Best Prompter

I use my iPad (and now my huge iPhone 6 plus) a whole lot for speaking. For a long time, I just imported my lesson into evernote, or pages, or some other word processing app, and taught from that. Thats ok, but it seems so 2011. I wanted to turn my iPad into something more, […]

Cracking cliques in your ministry

“Our students are so clique-y!”  This is an unfortunate but common refrain in youth ministry circles. We do such a great job of building community, but that community becomes so tight it does not welcome newcomers. It is a tight rope to walk, but we want a loving community that is also welcoming to those […]
