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.
- Andy Root--Great article from Dr. Root in Youth Worker Journal entitled "Youth Worker as Theologian: Why Youth Ministry Is Fundamentally Theological."
- Chris Wesley--Love this post from Chris: "Signs That You Are Standing In The Way."
- Doug Franklin--Great post from Doug about the fallacy that there is a magical moment where students are "ready" to be leaders. Great insight.
- Doug Fields--Doug asks a great question: what if the root of our busyness is fear? Ouch.
- Jay Higham--There are just a ton of solid ideas here from Jay: "How We Communicate with Students And Parents."
- Jeremy Smith--Thought this post was really good and super helpful: "Why Facebook Should Not Be Your Youth Ministry Website."
- Phil Bell--Great post from Phil entitled: "Are Kids Fighting To Come To Youth Group?"
- Rachel Blom--Love this from Rachel: "Is Your Youth Ministry Too Nice And Too Safe?"
- Tim Schmoyer--Tim posted just to give a little shout out to one of his newest ventures, the excellent blog "Ministry Family.com." If you haven't checked it out, I would advise you to. You can start here.
- Walt Mueller--Really like Walt's take here in a post entitled "Lesbian Homecoming Queen and King."
That's all the links for this week. As always, have an awesome weekend . . . And THANK YOU for the chance to serve you as part of the ym360 community.
