It’s that time of year, again. Graduation season is upon us, and for youth workers, this season will be spent at multiple graduations, graduation parties, and preparing for the “graduation” from youth group. There is no doubt that this is an exciting time of the year. As you look back at the countless hours invested in each student, you pray that he/she will continue in church, seek the Lord, and mature in the faith.

Most of us are regulars and our order is known before we have time to speak it. As we sat there enjoying both the ministry of small talk and pondering some of God’s goodness, Bailey began to notice something about the people I was exchanging hellos with— they were all older than me. She asked, “Who was that? How do you know him?” I responded, “That is my friend Dave. We go to church together. And that’s Hamilton, we see each other here at least once a week if not more. Oh, and that’s my friend Anna, she stops in on her way to work down the street.”

If things are going as they should, we should have new Christ-followers in our midst. Some ministries will have more than others but by the very nature of our role, we should be seeing teenagers come to faith in Christ, or getting serious about their faith for the first time. I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few years thinking about these new Christ-followers (I wrote a book specifically for new believers you can sample at the end of this post) and the spiritual needs they have. New Christ-followers have at least four basic needs.

Your graduating seniors may represent a chance to evaluate your youth ministry strategy. While it's by no means cut and dry, by looking at your graduating seniors, you might just get a glimpse into what students look like having come through your youth ministry.

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.

Communication is changing faster than we can type, “hashtag blessed,” and as the youth minister, you’re probably considered the most technically-savvy staff member at your church. There are so many different ways to communicate and so many different people to communicate with. Where do you even begin?

YM360's Creative Director, Erin Moon, gives an in-depth view at the the theme for this Summer's GENERATE Camp.
Written by YM360, in Training
Opening this week, “I’m Not Ashamed” is the powerful, true story of Columbine High School student Rachel Joy Scott. Growing up, Rachel knew the love of God, but she wasn’t always ready to receive it. At times her faith was on fire, and at other times it was at odds with her everyday life. But after praying, “Father, use my life to touch the world and let your light shine through me,” her renewed commitment to Jesus played out compassionately and powerfully at her high school, and around the world.
