Fav Read Of The Week:
“MORE ON HOW NOT TO GET FIRED FROM YOUR YOUTH PASTOR JOB” By Brian Berry
- Brian is one of my favorite voices, not just in youth ministry but just in general. We see each other once a year, tops, and I always leave challenged and having learned something new. This post is short but full of the kind of insight Brian just sort of oozes. Good read.

- Austin Walker—“Summer Schedule”
- Benjer McVeigh—“Five Things You Should Do This Summer”
