    Wrapping It Up

    Wrapping It Up

    We promised you some updates this month and to be honest, when we said that, we weren't sure yet what those updates would be. Reggie and I (Brian) were in the midst of making some decisions about our professional lives and over the course of the last 4 weeks we have both made some significant changes.

    In this episode we'll share what those changes are for each of us and what we're looking forward to as we wrap up our time together on The Ministry Leader Podcast.

    This has been an incredible journey for us and we are grateful for everyone who has been a part of it. Thank you for listening. Thank you for engaging. But most of all, thank you for loving Jesus and loving the young people in your community.

    This episode from June 2021, kicked off a series focused on the cultural attributes of Youth For Christ. The conversation revolves around how we define a Christ-centered culture. The other episodes in the series are linked in the notes below.

    Original show notes from June 28, 2021:

    This episode kicks off a 6 part series on culture, or more specifically, the culture that defines our minstry at Youth For Christ. We call these defining characteristics our cultural attributes and today we're talking the most important one from which all the others flow, Christ-centeredness.

    Biblically Calibrated. Missionally Focused. Vigorously Pursued. Preeminently Important.

    What attributes define the culture of your ministry?

    140. Humility that Endures
    141. Trusting Relentlessly
    142. Joyful Camaraderie
    143. Courageous Faithfulness
    144. Kingdom Inspired Diversity

    This episode from August 2021 was one of our favorites, not just because it was a fun conversation to have, but because of the value it communicates to a young person when you remember their name. And as you will hear, we're not always good at it. So since we needed the reminder, we thought it might not hurt to share it again with our listeners as well.

    Original show notes from August 30, 2021:

    As the new ministry year begins, you and your team will likely be in contact with a lot of new students which can present some challenges if you are unsure how to engage. In this episode we're talking about how to start conversations and remember names.

    What is your strategy for remembering names of new students?

Fun and to the point

I love the content and the time. It is in easy bite size chunks that makes it easy for busy leaders to listen to weekly. Best part is how fun they make it and still get to the point of each episode.

Chase and Brian do a great job bringing practical ministry topics to each episode, and these episodes are the perfect length for busy ministry staff and volunteers! Keep up the great work!
