ym360 knows youth workers. We know what an incredibly rewarding, yet incredibly challenging job youth ministry can be. There are days when your spirits are sky-high, and there are days when you could use a bit of a “pick me up” from God's Word . . . That's why we're happy to offer Youth Worker Boost, one of the many valuable resources on the ym360 Blog.
Boost is a short, weekly piece of encouragement designed to, well, “boost” your spirits and encourage you as you minister to students. We consider it yet another great opportunity to serve you and your ministry.

"And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”--Hebrews 13:16
In 1988 Nike decided to go with the advertising campaign and slogan, "JUST DO IT." The company was cautiously optimistic about their new campaign. They could never have imagined what happened next.
The slogan exploded, of course.
25 years later Advertising Age magazine named it the second best advertising campaign of the 20th century. In the end those three words made Nike a lot of money selling merchandise under the banner, "JUST DO IT." The phrase "just do it" was around long before 1988. There are at least six times in the New Testament where Christians are told to "just do it." Just do good things, that is. If you want to know if you're doing the right thing, stop and first ask if you're doing a goodthing.
A life that is pleasing to God and a life that honors God is a life centered bringing "goodness" to others.
Our prayer for you: Our prayer for you today is that you would seek to be someone who does good things, and lead students to do the same.
