Welcome to the Youth Ministry in Motion Podcast

I want to keep youth pastors, like you, motivated and your youth ministries moving forward because too many youth workers are giving up and their youth ministries getting stuck. I want to take my 30 years of youth ministry experience and  break down questions youth workers are asking, like

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

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