It's become one of our favorite traditions: bringing in the new year on the YM360 Blog by remembering the highlights of the year that was.

As we looked at our analytics from the past year and drilled down to find the most-read posts, we saw that one thing these articles have in common. They deal with the area of Discipleship. This is super encouraging for us, as it shows the amazing passion the YM360 Community has for seeing teenagers draw closer to Christ.

In fact, it's one of our values here at YM360;

We Empower Discipleship. At YM360, we want to see teenagers know God and make Him known. In a word, we want to see them become disciples. Whether it’s GENERATE Camp by YM360, a Bible study resource, or a training experience, the things we create at YM360 are all designed to lead students, and leaders like you, closer to Christ. Everything we do is biblically-centered, culturally-relevant, and ultra-creative. If it’s from YM360, you can trust it.

So, without further ado, here are the Top Most-Read articles from 2016.

And so, from everyone on the YM360 Team, we want to wish you a happy and blessed New Year.

It has been a true privilege to serving you in 2016. We look forward to the chance of continuing the partnership in 2017 to help you lead students closer to Christ & to make Him known.
