    70: 8 Things White Youth Pastors Can Do About Racism

    Justin and Matthew sit down with Theo Davis, who wrote a very helpful blog post on the DYM Blog about how white your pastors can talk and help with racism. His post on Facebook has thousands of views and shares and we have a great conversation about the current state of our country and how to chat about it with students.

DJ Frady ,

New Youth Guy

I just started in youth ministry and found this podcast in my research of looking for teachings, help and ideas. I’m up to episode 16 and so grateful for this podcast and hacks I have gotten so far. Looking forward to the rest of the episodes.

Music?

The advice and hacks are great! Listening to experiences of others is awesome.......but music playin the background while they are speaking is super distracting for me. I have ADD so all I can focus on is the background music.

Speak Honestly ,

Great Podcast for People in Ministry

This podcast is catered to youth ministry, but anyone in ministry can learn a lot from these guys
