    SYM Show: It's Too Hot....Somebody Turn On The A.C.!

    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: Hug It Out!

    SYM Show: Hug It Out!

    The guys dig into more mail from the Youth Ministry Nation and tackle questions about when to make changes, how to handle an unsupportive church, dating tips and more. Plus...an incredibly awkward hug.

    SYM Show: Headbangers, Worship Divas and Theology!

    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!

    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

    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.

Videos are awesome!

Watching these in bed on my iPad I often get yelled at by my pregnant wife for busting out laughing when I try to sneak in a episode before going to bed.

Great insights

This podcast is an indespensible resource for all youth workers, whether you are a volunteer or a full time youth worker. Doug and his friends have years of experience and connections that make their opinions, wisdom, experience, and even their jokes a great resource for all of us. Answering our questions and providing entertainment makes for a welcome blend of useful information and hilarity that won't get old.

Thanks guys and gal for all you do!

Great stuff

Just enough ministry that you don't feel guilty for
Listening......just enough sarcasm to feel guilty for listening....more than enough hilarity to listen to all 130+ over again. I have changed entire points of view concerning ministry aspects based on these guys' advice, wisdom (opinions), and experience. Thanks!
