SYM Show: It's Too Hot....Somebody Turn On The A.C.!
Kurt misses his first show ever (he says it's because he was out helping an old lady cross the street), and nobody cares because A.C. is in the house! On this episode A.C. and Jason discuss transitioning children from the kids ministry to the youth group, how to calendar and plan, parents taking advantage of you, the myth of keeping up the pace and the fact that A.C.'s daughter is quickly becoming picky and pricey!
SYM Show: Headbangers, Worship Divas and Theology!
The Youth Ministry Nation mailbox is overflowing with emails so the guys are taking the next three episodes to catch up! This week, questions and conversation flow fast and furious....which makes sense in light of Kurt's occasional insistence that he looks like Vin Diesel (mostly just the arms).
SYM Show: The E's Have It!
This week, Jason commits the unforgivable sin: He badmouths George Lucas. In the meantime, Kurt isn't even sure who George Lucas is. As for youth ministry discussion....the guys tackle portions of a topic that is a constant challenge in youth ministry; creating a healthy volunteer ministry culture. As Kurt rambles off some of his thoughts, a disturbing trend is identified.
SYM Show: The Aftermath
What do you do after a big event like a youth ministry conference of camp? How do you avoid losing the "mountain top" high? Should you avoid losing it? In addition to this rich discussion, Kurt saddles up his horse and we learn first-hand why Jason is a drummer, not a singer.
SYM Show: Why Are You Watching This When There's A Sweet Conference Going On?
In honor of the Simply Youth Ministry Conference happening this weekend, Kurt and Jason share some of their tips for making the most out of attending a conference. A.C. gets a gift from a sponsor even though he's hardly ever on the show and Kurt hits a basketball shot even Michael Jordan would be proud of.
SYM Show: Marriage, Ministry & Sexy Time!
Dr. Tim Levert joins the guys via Skype to share three marriage and ministry tips. Also on this episode Jason riffs about Star Wars and Kurt doesn't care, there is a celebrity sponsor and the ongoing bet over the previous usage of the fancy black chairs is settled!
LOVE THE NEW FORMAT
Enjoyed the old show, but wow this is great!
I love this...
I have watched The Office a million times and needed another timesink that made me smile. I m so happy I found this podcast! Its just enough to be helpful and more than enough to make me happy! Please keep them coming.
I noticed that no one has reviewed the podcast in a while. This is a great podcast for youth workers and parents. I started listening a year and a half ago and am going back to the beginning to catch them all. The reviewers that didn't like the podcast didn't understand the p-cast. The banter is just as important as the answers. Thanks, team, for letting me be a part!
