So I’ve been hanging out with some pretty awesome guys on Wednesday mornings, talking about youth ministry issues. We call it “Youth Ministry +” because it’s on google+ and we’re creative like that.
All of us are in youth ministry somewhere, but I wanted you to be able to connect with them and their blogs. Go check them out:
Josh Robinson lives in Ocala, Florida and is the Student Pastor at The Church @ The Springs. You can read his blog here. I had the pleasure of working a summer of camp with Josh. He’s a great guy and great student pastor who loves to share ideas and resources. Follow his twitter here.
Matt Sawyer (he’s the one on the right) is the youth minister at Southside Baptist Church in Dothan, AL. He’s new at the job, but not in youth ministry. He’s been at that for five years now. Glad I’m getting to know him! Check him out on twitter.
Blake Appleby has the coolest “I’m at the black and white beach photo” ever. He’s also the Youth Pastor at FBC Umatilla in Florida. Just met him this week and looking forward to getting to know him better, he had some great words about Vision in our last episode. Have twitter? Follow Blake.
Brandon Phillips is the only one with a picture of his iPad on his blog. He’s also the one who has to get up the earliest to hang out with us. He’s the Youth AND Worship guy at FBC Ruidoso in New Mexico. You’ll have to watch the episodes to find out how to pronounce that. Say a prayer for him, he got up super early and wears two hats at his church. Follow his tweets here.
Tripp Battle is the student minister at FBC Albertville, AL. He’s also got a manly beard. Tripp will be the one with good advice and the one who plays with the sound effects during the episodes. He’s a good guy and I’m glad I got connected with him through this little adventure. Follow him on twitter.
Are you in youth ministry? Check out Youth Ministry + and these guys’ blogs for encourage, resources, and ideas.
We’re all in this together for His glory! (You thought I was going High School Musical on you. But you were wrong. And now, the song is stuck in your head. You’re welcome.)
Blessings on you guys as you prepare to minister to students tonight and every day!
