Giving youth pastors the tools they need to make and shape disciples.

Taking Time To Redefine

3 · 05 · 13


This product probably tastes like it was named, but I love when a name matches of something matches it’s purpose. Like the plunger. It plunges into the toilet and does it’s magic so i do not have to. O.k. that may be a poor example, considering the example above, but isn’t it true that the a good name could reflect or define someone or something’s purpose without having to think about it?

The name of our youth ministry is Fusion. It was the name I inherited. I probably could have should have re-branded it when I go their but I wanted the kids to do it.I ask them once a year, “Are we still Fusion? Dos the name reflect who we are now?” Most say yes probably for lack of a better name but some have adopted Fusion and use to describe their experience “Awesome night at Fusion!” – FB post

I have two questions:

1. Does the name of your group/small group/sunday school etc. still define who you are and what you do or what you want to become as a ministry?

The second questions is a bit selfish on my part but if you could answer in the comment section, that would be a blessing. I am on day 3 of 31 Days To Regaining Your Blogging Mojo by Bryan Allain. 

The challenge was how to answer the question:”What is your blog about?” My answer was “To disciple, equip, and train youth workers through compelling and challenging posts and to help them disciple their students through the free resources I create for them.” It’s a bit long, and true, but not very sexy. So I ask you:

What is this blog about? Am I on track with my vision? Does the name tell you what this about?

Thanks in advance for the comments you leave below. I am looking forward to your thoughts. Bonus: Check out the other 19 Most Horribly Named Food Products
