flashback friday (oct. 19): 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.
- Linked Post: 5 Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before a Retreat, by Robbie Mackenzie
- Youth Worker BOOST: God's Hand, by Richard Parker
- Facebook Shenanigans: Should You Move Your Ministry Page? by Jeremy Smith
- Youth Ministry Essentials: Leading An Awesome Discussion, by Brendt Blanks
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:
First World Youth Ministry Problems, by Benjer McVeigh. I laughed when I saw this, first of all because it's a phrase you'll hear often around the ym360 office. We'll inevitably be griping about something that's gone wrong when we'll either check ourselves or someone else will check us with the retort, "First-world Problem." I like how Benjer has applied it to youth ministry. I laughed because the "problems" are common to all youth ministry, and at the same time, they aren't really problems at all.
The Rest Of The Best:
