LIVE Youth Ministry TalkLast Monday we spent Martin Luther King Jr. holiday talking about urban youth ministry, diversity, and what the rest of the youth ministry world can learn from those working with inner-city teenagers.

Some of the things we talked about:

  • How contextual ministry morphs our view of theology
  • Handling ministry events with low-income and no budget
  • And a whole lot more…
