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:
- Brian Aaby, Five Youth Pastor What Ifs -- I loved this post from Brian. It's sort of a take on the whole "what I wish I knew then" angle, where Brian looks at some key observations gleaned through nearly two decades in youth ministry. I thought his reflections were profound and practical. Definitely worth a read.
