Let ‘Em Speak

  Sometimes we can be overly protective of our pulpit/lectern/podium/music stand/stack of old shoe boxes and somehow get the idea that we are the only ones who can talk to our youth. That within itself is an issue, but it is a particular hurdle for this post’s topic – students speaking in front of the…

“I Hate Going to Youth Group”

There are good reasons why competent adults find themselves uncommonly baffled when working with adolescents. As winsome as they may be at times, teenagers present youth workers and volunteers with challenges that other age groups do not. Teens are often an involuntary participant. They are in your office, groups, outreaches, programs, etc. because somebody else…

Do Less: A (No)Programmatic Answer to the Spring Slump

I will admit when I first looked at our 12-month calendar, the gap made me nervous. In Summer, we had mission trips, choir tour, Camp Barnabas, vacation bible school, mission day camp, senior trip. In Fall, we had kick-off, high school retreat, middle school lock-in (ugh), and Halloween carnival. We quickly transitioned into advent with…

A Video Training Series: Teaching (Part 1)

Teaching students as a leader is a great responsibility. More so, being prepared and how we prepare will dictate how well that teaching time goes. The truth is a prepared teacher will be a better teacher than the most charismatic teacher who does not prepare. Just because you can say something well, doesn’t mean what…

Joshua’s Big Audacious Prayer

I recently finished up studying through the book of Joshua. While reading through this book, I found myself spending a little extra time contrasting chapters 9 and 10. I found the words of Joshua 9:14 to be very sad, “but they did not seek the LORD’s counsel.” As a Christ-follower, we should always seek the…

3 Big Ideas for Keeping Your Ministry Rhythm this Winter

We all need more rhythm. I’m not talking about the kind of rhythm that makes us good at singing and clapping at the same time…or the kind that makes us cool youth pastors that can beatbox. I’m talking about the rhythm of our youth ministry schedules. If you think about it, youth ministry needs rhythm. Take fall…

My Year Long Teaching Plan for Youth Ministry

The benefits of having a year-long teaching plan are worth it! A professor of mine once said, if it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing in college would get done. I couldn’t tell you how many ten-page research papers I started at midnight, the night before they were due. While I got them done, they…

3 Tips for Speaking to Kids… Who Don’t Want to Listen

A few months ago a youth worker from El Paso, TX called me up and asked, “Do you want to speak at school assemblies for a week in Texas?” If I would have answered him honestly, I would have responded, “No way!” Why? Because who would be stupid enough to get up in front of…
