Today’s featured guest had to reschedule due to sick kids at home, so instead we had a laid-back, open form discussion on several youth ministry topics. We asked questions, shared stories, sought advice, and talked about real-life ministry issues. We had a great time!
Some of the things we talked about:
- High school graduates who don’t leave youth group
- Managing time between ministry and family
- Knowing what to do next when all the work seems to be done
- When your pastor’s teenager attends a different church’s youth group
- And a lot more…
You can listen to the whole conversation below or grab it in iTunes.
Next week’s discussion
September 18: Next week LIVE YM Talk is with guest, Mark Matlock, who will lead us in a discussion about how to use improvisational techniques for group learning. This will be a pretty cutting-edge discussion about how to great a group that can self-teach and self-direct itself in the process of self-discovery teaching. The NYWC will begin to use some of these techniques this year, so join us to hear a bit more how you can use it for your youth group, too!
