Let me start today with a quote,

“Maybe that’s why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn’t able to do what it was meant to do — Maybe it’s the same with people. If you lose your purpose — it’s like you’re broken.” -Hugo Cabret from the movie Hugo

This is exactly how I feel about churches and youth ministries. Broken churches (I’ve worked in a few) and broken youth ministries (I’ve led a few) makes me sad because I know things could be different with a little help.

Sadly, many churches want success without putting in the work, converts without sharing the gospel and disciples without putting in the relational time needed for people to grow.. None of this works this way. Broken.

When youth ministries or youth ministers are not fulfilling their purpose, I get sad and I want to help. That’s why I offer a free newsletter, youtube videos, podcasts, and resources. I want you to fulfill your purpose not only as a youth minister, but as a human being as well.

If I can help you or your youth ministry with coaching, check out this page.

Let’s get together and build a great youth ministry that reaches students and makes disciples.

Have a great week.



I believe every church is either supernatural or superficial. I don’t believe in any middle ground. – Leonard Ravenhill
