Walt Mueller and MinistryQuestions.com coming up in LIVE YM Talk

Walt Mueller and MinistryQuestions coming up in LIVE YM TalkWe have a couple exciting LIVE YM Talks coming up! If you haven’t joined us yet on Mondays at 2:00 PM, it’s always a great conversation among youth workers from all over the country. We gather together in an online chat room and on the phone to learn from each other.

We have two exceptionally good talks coming up the next two weeks.

Answering recent questions and debates from MinistryQuestions.com: Monday, November 30

Not sure why I didn’t think of this sooner. It just makes natural sense to do a Ministry Questions podcast where we discuss some of the recent questions, answers and debates posted to the site. So, this coming Monday we’ll be doing our first Ministry Questions LIVE YM Talk episode. We’ll probably make this a semi-regular discussion, so come be a part of the first one.

If you have some questions you’d like us to discuss together, get ’em posted at MinistryQuestions.com sometime before Monday.

Q&A with Walt Mueller: Monday, December 7

Next Monday we have the tremendous privilege of having Walt Mueller, founder and President of the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding, join us for LIVE YM Talk. This will be a great opportunity for us to interact with him, ask questions, and pick his brain on issues relating to youth culture. If you’ve ever wanted to sit down and talk with Walt, this is your chance!

We’d like to have as many questions ready-to-go for Walt as possible, so if you have something you’d like to talk with him about, please post it in the comments below. This will both help us manage our time well and help Walt come as prepared as possible for you. It would be great if you could show up for the conversation and ask him your question yourself, but if you’re unable to, I’ll do my best to ask many of your questions as I can in your place. Either way, post them in the comments below between now and then.

  • For Walt: The technology that teenagers have access to continues to change and advance at a rapid rate. A great and timely MySpace seminar that a tech-savvy parent did at our church two years ago is now outdated. Yes, it's important for parents to understand the basics of the technologies that their teenagers are using (Facebook, Twitter, advanced cell phones, etc.), but in a year, there will be something new to learn. In addition, by the time most parents are aware of a technology, it is reaching its peak, has already garnered a huge following among teenagers, and it takes many parents and youth workers by surprise. What are guiding principles you would offer to parents and youth workers as technology continues to develop and it becomes nearly impossible to stay informed about the new ways teenagers use technology?

    • Good question! Thanks, Benjer. I'll do my best to ask him for you if you're unable to join the call and ask yourself.

      • Thanks. I'll have to catch the podcast, because Mondays are my day off, too, and I'll be getting our oldest down for her nap at noon in Utah.
