Love this podcast!

As a 15 year youth ministry vet, this is the best, most actionable youth ministry podcast I’ve ever listened to. The perfect balance of humor, banter, and practical helps for our ministry. Always leave each episode encouraged and ready to be more intentional in our student ministry. Justin and Sean are epic!

Tools That Can Be Used Immediately

Really enjoy listening to these guys. They have a heart for Jesus and a heart for students. The tools that they give can be applied right away to many ministries. Their humble attitudes are evident and this podcast is well worth any youth workers time.
