Linked Post: How New Ideas Affect Your Ministry

At ym360, everything we do falls into one of four categories: Bible Study Resources, Training, Community, or Networking. For us, networking means highlighting great content, great people, and great ministries. When we find something valuable, we share it. This happens most frequently on our Flashback Friday posts. But it happens in other ways, as well.

One of the ways we focus on Networking is by linking to solid content we encounter on blogs or websites.

Christopher Wesley is a great youth minister and one of our ym360 Contributors. Chris blogs daily at Marathon Youth Ministry. It's one of our favorite blogs. You should definitely add it to your list of regular reads.
