Welcome! If you’re new here and are not a subscriber, subscribe here and get the Youth Ministry Round Up in your inbox. 

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I hope your tree is up, you’ve bought all your gifts and you’ve starting to hunker down for some hard core relaxing, you’ve earned it. This is the last Round Up of 2018 and I could use your feedback to make this newsletter better in 2019.

Is there something more I can include? A different segment? More interactive polls? I want to be the guy that you think of when you think, “Who cares about my ministry besides me?, Oh, that Paul guy.” That’s right, want to show up in 2019 when you need an idea, a resource, some feedback or just a shoulder to cry on. So, hit me with how I can help you in 2019 by sending me an e-mail about what you have loved about these Round Ups and what I can do to make them better.

Last thing, I want you to have your best year of youth ministry yet, and in order for that to happen 1) you need to plan on it and 2) you need a playbook to make it happen.

Check out what is becoming one of my best selling resources to get you on track for 2019
