Why Another Youth Ministry Blog?

That’s a great question.

I’ve been in youth ministry for 27 years now.  I love to read and learn. And one of the things I’ve recognized is that there are a lot of “voices” out there that we never hear from in this are of youth ministry.  I know a bunch of folks who love God and love students who have diligently ministered to teenagers for years but who go relatively quiet. We have so much to learn from them – from each other. My desire is that this become a forum where those many unheard voices in the trenches can be heard so that we can all learn from each other and become more effective at reaching students for Jesus Christ.  Will this work?  I don’t know. I hope so. I don’t want this to be about me and my voice – that’s for sure. So start writing and start submitting what God is teaching you, doing in you, doing in your ministry and allow all of us to learn from each other.  We’ll all be better shepherds of students for it.
