How to connect God’s Word with students who appear disconnected, apathetic, and distracted [podcast]

Topic / Podcasts

LIVE Youth Ministry TalkLast Monday we talked about how to connect God’s Word with students who appear disconnected, apathetic, and distracted. Our featured guests was E.J. Swanson, a speaker who travels the country speaking to teens at camps, retreats, and conferences. His wisdom and experience where very helpful for speaking into this issue.

Some of the things we talked about:

  • How passion subconsciously teaches kids
  • What NOT to share from your personal life when teaching
  • Creating community around your teaching
  • Number of kids a full-time youth worker can adequately invest into
  • Having your voice heard among many negative voices
  • And a whole lot more…
