Short and sweet. So many implications for ministry. Typical Seth Godin style.

My job
Ever been frustrated with kids’ wavering commitment to a Christ-like lifestyle? Craig’s perspective is absolutely correct.

Abstract Youth Ministry
I’m still mulling over this one. Thought provoking. I appreciate Steve’s perspective.

When to quit
How do you decide when it’s time to pull the plug on a ministry or just make changes?

Stinky Junior High
lol! What a great idea!

Halo, Rock Band, and Student Ministry
If your youth group doesn’t play Halo, maybe Rock Band is a good alternative for the reasons Justin lists.

If you have suggestions for a resource that could help people with creating Bible lessons for students, contact Jason.

100 blog topics I hope YOU write
I wrote this last year and so far many people have taken advantage of it. Check out the list for a lot of great links. There’s still plenty of openings available for your blog articles, too.

Life in Student Ministry on Facebook
If you’re on Facebook and haven’t joined the Life in Student Ministry Facebook Page yet, check it out. It’s where I communicate “behind the scenes” stuff that I don’t post here on the blog.
