    085: Exciting News

    085: Exciting News

    Welcome to this very special episode of the podcast! As many of you know, we have been around as a podcast since February 2016. Over that time, we’ve had 85 episodes with over 70 guests. This started out as a huge experiment. I knew I wanted to have these conversations with others in student ministry, and I thought maybe others would want to listen in to those conversations too. Low and behold, you did want to listen, you keep showing up, and you keep sharing it with others. 

    Please know that we are not planning to end the podcast anytime soon. It’s been a huge blessing to me and many others. What I really want to do is take it to the next level for you and the many student ministry workers who have yet to tune in. So, starting today, we are rebranding. The podcast and the bigger vision moving forward will be known as Student Ministry Connection!

    Listen to this episode to learn more about what Student Ministry Connection will be about and what is on the horizon!

Love this show!

Just listened to the episode with Aussie Dave about digital ministry. So inspired by his journey and willingness to obey God and become the 8th online pastor in the world even when he had a lot questions. I also appreciated the point about “answering the questions that students are asking” and showing up where they already are - on social media. So amazing to see what God has done and I believe the best is yet to come.

This is a great show for ministry leaders I love the various topics these guests have covered so far and looking forward to more episodes.
