Understandably, adults are concerned about the online behavior of teenagers, specifically with social media. When I’m out talking to youth workers and hosting parent workshops I find most adults fall into one of two categories:
It’s late April.
It’s a dangerous time for vocational youth workers. Interest & attendance is typically waning a little as the school year winds down. Youth workers, especially younger ones, start feeling as though things aren’t going well because fewer teenagers are coming. Things that worked in October just aren’t working.
On March 15th, we’re releasing a brand new student devotional, The Real Jesus.
We think it’s really, really good. And we think it’s really, really important that your students get to know The Real Jesus.

To give you an insight into the awesomeness that was The Summit 2015, today we’re releasing this video from Gemma Dunning’s talk, Love the Saint.
Most of us in youth ministry pour 100% of our passion into a job that pays about 75% of our family’s needs.
