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:
- 5 Ways to Foster Great Communication with Your Team by Chris LoCurto: This isn't a youth ministry post, but it is extremely applicable to anyone who leads or works on a team. It's a guest post from Michael Hyatt's blog. I found the points LoCurto makes here to be extremely insightful, easily applicable, and best of all, short and easy to digest. Check it out. I think you'll benefit from his points.
