The Youth Ministry Exchange (The YME) is for youth pastors, ministry leaders, volunteers, and educators who serve middle and high school students. Each episode, we will discuss urban youth ministry related topics, reflect on our experiences as youth ministry leaders, and share our ideas about how we can best reach and disciple succeeding generations.
Ep. 011 - From Student to Leader
This week, we talked to Mindy and Nico, two leaders who grew up in the ministry they are currently serving in. Check out what they had to say about their transition, what challenges they faced, and what advice they would give to leaders who are grooming students to step up when they graduate.
Ep. 010 - What Do Parents Look For?
Student ministry must be attractive to students, but it should also be attractive to parents. We got a chance to chat with two parents about what qualities they look for in student ministry and what they've learned over time.
EP. 009 - The Importance of Summer Camp
Many youth groups have annual retreats and vacation bible school, but nothing compares to the life-changing experience of overnight summer camps. We are joined by Pastor Xavier Raymond to discuss why summer camp is so crucial for students, and how to overcome some of the barriers that many leaders face in planning to attend.
Ep. 008 - Mix It Up (Conversations about Diversity)
In today's climate, diversity is a hot topic...even in the church. Is true diversity in your church/ministry truly possible? Is it just about race? Are there moments when not having diversity is a good thing?
EP. 007 - Side Hugs ONLY
The importance of setting physical and social boundaries in youth ministry.
EP. 006 - That FLOPPED
We've all experienced it...even if we don't want to admit it! Hear us chat about our experiences at failed youth ministry events and how to recover when it happens.
