Easy Five Stars

The most helpful youth ministry podcast, hands down.

Entertaining and insightful

It’s great learning from guys who are in the trenches! I’ve taken away page after page of notes on how to improve in youth ministry. Thanks fellas!

Great content

As someone who is jumping back into the youth ministry world, I was looking for podcasts to listen to outside of the “big hitters.” This one has been a great resource so far, but my only concern (which doesn’t impact the star rating) is the volume. I have to really crank my volume to hear the podcast in my car or Bluetooth speaker.
