Gordon and I were in youth ministry together in Spokane, WA in the States. It’s wonderful that youth ministry is more than “a great idea that someone else should go” like it often is in congregations over here, but an actual top priority in NZ. I love your podcast. Keep up the great and vital ministry to current and future generations! God bless you all
