The Value of Play in Ministry

We all know the reputation of youth ministry – its all fun and games (and even better if someone loses an eye!). At times, its a well deserved rep. Many youth ministries even today are based around fun, entertainment, and play with a little bit of God thrown in. On the other extreme, you have […]
