    Hack On Serving Globally w/out Leaving Home : Operation Christmas Child

    In this special episode of the podcast Justin and Matthew sat down some some of our friends at Samaritan's Purse who run Operation Chritmas Child to talk about how youth groups can have an easy way to serve those around the world without leaving their church. We are always looking for great ways to help students realize there is more outside themselves and this is a great way to do that.

Youth Pastor

I’ve been a Youth Pastor for years and have just recently just started listening to this cast and has changed the game....

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.
