If you’ve subscribed to our emails or follow along on social media, you’ve possibly heard that we are expecting our second baby.. really soon! (Like, next weekend kinda soon!) So while our family adjusts to being a family of 4 and we finish out the year here with our own Youth, I’ll be taking a break from blogging.
But I have a treat for you! The blog won’t be taking a break (just me!) and instead will be doing something really cool! It’s a brand new series where you’ll be getting to hear from some AMAZING people involved in Youth Ministry from all over the world. And it launches in just one week. You don’t want to miss it!
Real Life Youth Ministry
Our new series is called Real Life Youth Ministry and it’s simply that- stories of Youth Min happening in real life. The idea behind this is to bring encouragement through testimony. The Devil loves to bring discouragement, confusion, and make us feel like we’re not doing a good job or just aren’t good enough to be used by God. But the Bible says,
“And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony.” –Revelation 12:11
We all need encouragement in ministry at times. And sharing stories is one way we can encourage others on their journey. Since sharing my husband’s story of balancing full time work with ministry and family we have received many responses and emails from those in ministry who have been encouraged and inspired by it!
The stories in this series are all about testimony, encouragement, the fun stuff and the tough stuff. And what I love most is that they’re your stories of what Jesus is up to in Youth Ministries around the world. Stories of overcoming cultural barriers and pride, balancing motherhood and ministry, and bring unity to a group of divided and angry teenagers are just a few. I love the diversity of groups, cultures, and contexts represented. No two Youth Ministries are the same and there’s definitely a story to connect with you here.
Want to share your story?
Your story can make a difference in someone’s life and ministry, and provide much needed insight, ideas, strategy, or encouragement. And I’d love to invite you to share it, too! Click here to get involved.
I am so excited for this series to launch! Testimony is such a great faith-builder and I know you will be encouraged and inspired and built up by the testimonies and stories shared here. I’m praying that God will use this series in a mighty way over the next few weeks, but also for years to come.
Don’t forget to check back next Friday for the very first story! To make sure you don’t miss any of these amazing stories follow along on Instagram or Facebook, or sign up for our emails. You will also be able to find all stories in our new category- Stories.
