How youth ministry has changed over 10 years [video]

For the past several months Kent Shaffer of has been coaching me through a lot of things in life lately: transitioning out of my church, the business side of blogging, marketing my upcoming YS/Zondervan book (tip: the pre-order on Amazon is currently 32% off!), and more. We’ve had a lot of really good conversations, so it was fun to meet up with him for breakfast while passing through his home town of Oklahoma City last week.

I asked him how he perceives youth ministry has changed over the past 10 years and he gave several insightful responses. We also talked about how ministries should adapt to an ever-changing culture, and how to best make ministry sticky for those we serve. Check it out in the video below!
