We search the Internet to bring you relevant information to help you be a better youth worker. Here are some links from posts we thought were pretty great.
Fav Read Of The Week:
- "Youth Meeting: When You Don’t Know What To Preach” by Paul Turner: Our buddy Paul has written a great little post here. We've all been in that place where we're supposed to be preaching or teaching and we're still not quite sure what we're going to teach on. (OK, OK, so, maybe not ALL of us, but I've definitely been there!) Paul gives some great suggestions here for topics, thoughts, and strategies for landing on exactly what to teach on. Good stuff!
