Communicating God’s Word effectively with teenagers [podcast]

LIVE Youth Ministry TalkRick Smith joined us last Monday to talk about communicating God’s Word effectively to teenagers. Rick is a youth minister who love speaking at camps, conferences and retreats. It’s from his experience that he shared some insightful thoughts about teaching teenager the Bible.

Unfortunately, we were plagued with technical difficulties throughout the conversation: the conference call’s host service had some hardware failures along with my microphone working incorrectly, so everyone was having some issues. I’ve doctored up the audio the best I could, but it’s still pretty rough.

Some of the things we talked about:

  • Allowing the Holy Spirit to teach through you
  • Teaching scripture to the apathetic kids
  • How our personal walk impacts our teaching
  • How big of a deal it is to teach God’s Word
  • And a lot more…
