Too many youth ministries are getting stuck and too many youth workers are giving up. Through this podcast, I want to keep you motivated and your youth ministries moving forward. I want to take my 30 years of youth ministry and break down questions youth workers are asking,  

How do I grow our youth ministry?
What can I do to develop my preaching skills?
When is the best time to do a lock in (easy answer, never!)

I know that youth pastors who are always learning, and remain spiritually healthy, can make an impact in their church, community, and on their students lives. Thanks for listening and loving teenagers.

Practical Youth Ministry Advice

Paul has a way of being incredibly gracious, speaking the truth and leaving you wanting to be a better youth pastor. I love the youth ministry in motion podcast because it is practical, spiritual and a space to be human! No matter the size of your ministry you are welcome at the table. Paul knows what he’s talking about!
