    Piercing belly buttons, chugging Mountain Dew, and toxic leadership

    Piercing belly buttons, chugging Mountain Dew, and toxic leadership

    Everything in Youth Group was huge. This week had to be better than last week and we always had to one-up ourselves. That was fun - and it got a lot of kids to show up - but it led to some things we didn't mean for it to. From toxic leadership to not knowing how the Gospel applies to real life, there were some misses when it came to how we did things. This week we find the good pieces, dive into the misses, and talk about how we create a better future.

    Lost sheep, parties, and offending our friends

    Lost sheep, parties, and offending our friends

    We have our own language inside the Church and it's taught to us starting in youth group. But that language can be offensive to people outside the Church when they hear it. This week we talk about how the words we use to describe people outside our church can keep us from spreading the Gospel and how dangerous the labels we use can be.

    Frick you, you frickin frick

    Christian cuss words! Yep. They're a thing. This week we talk about how we focused on the actual words and not the heart behind the words and how that led to our own set of approved bad words.

    Stop drop and roll don't work in hell

    If you've ever heard the phrase "turn or burn" or been asked if you knew where you were going when you die, this episode is for you. We talk about how we focused on fire insurance instead of a real relationship with Jesus and how that led to fear, anxiety, and a superficial salvation.

Thankful God Works Despite my Cringe-worthy Leadership

Too many of these topics I've either experienced personally in my past as a student in high school and/or have cropped up in my own leadership as a Youth Pastor and as a parent. Thankful that God uses weak vessels like me to advance His kingdom even in spite of my blunders.

I promise, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll relate. Give it a listen!

This speaks to me

I can’t begin to tell you how much I relate to this show. As a pastor’s kid, I couldn’t take a passive role in youth group leadership, and looking back, sometimes I want to cringe at the theology presented in these settings.

But what I love is that this show isn’t a “blame fest.” Context matters, many of the things we were taught were done with good intentions. This show focuses on growing out of those experiences, not looking back so we can simply criticize, but so that we can grow and do a little better by our kids.

Love it!

Only slightly biased

Just because I sleep with the host, doesn’t mean I always like his projects. But this one is awesome! 😉

This show makes you laugh and is full of really good content. It makes you feel less alone and helps you move forward in your life or when teaching your kids.
