flashback friday (aug 17): this week's links from the youth ministry blogosphere
One of the things we are committed to at ym360 is Networking. Our vision for networking is connecting you to people and organizations doing awesome youth ministry.
Flashback Friday is a feature where we give you the run down of some of the awesome posts from the past week across youth ministry blogs. Consider it our way of keeping you connected with what is going on.
This last week on the ym360 Blog was given over to our Back-To-School Giveaway.
If you didn't catch it, we gave away a ton of sweet resources. To enter, people had to answer a few simple questions.
As always, we loved seeing the responses of all the great youth workers who participated. We had a blast reading through them, and think you'd appreciate them as well. Following is a link to each day's post with the question for that day (If you want to read the responses, click on the link then scroll down to the bottom of the page to the comment section.):
- Day 1 Question: What is the one piece of advice you would give to someone just getting started in youth ministry?
- Day 2 Question: What was your favorite "youth ministry moment" over the last year?
- Day 3 Question: What are you most looking forward to in this upcoming year of youth ministry?
