    Episode 51: Social Media and Youth Ministry

    Joel Harris spent most of his teenage years growing an online following through YouTube & Instagram, becoming a social media influencer and travelling the country presenting shows. Despite such success he struggled with his identity, and the subtle trap of seeking worth through likes and followers. 



    In this Episode of the Limitless Leadership Podcast, Joel discusses his personal story, explaining how social media has impacted him and how he has learned to manage it. He has some great advice for youth leaders as to how we can utilise social media in youth ministry, and how we can disciple young people in a digital age.

A great podcast for youth leaders

I listen to a lot of youth ministry podcasts and I believe this podcast is up there with the best!

Tim does a wonderful job leading Limitless and has lots of insight and experience in Youth Ministry.

The podcast covers relevant topics to any youth workers - employer or volunteers. I would highly recommend this pod and look forward to more content in the future.

Keep up the awesome work and thanks for everything you do!
